If you need to schedule jobs in Java, it is fairly common in the industry to use Quartz directly or via Spring integration. Quartz’ home page at the time of writing claims that using quartz is a simple 3-step process: Download, add to app, execute jobs when you need to. For any of you that actually have experience with Quartz, this is truly laughable.

I have a strong disdain for quartz but using a "Quartz sucks" article to promote your own scheduler is pretty low.

hi, you can directly promote your product by explaining its features...need not bash Quartz to promote your product.

It's ok writing and publishing commercial solution, but I wouldn't write anything bad about concurrent products even open source.
,You must be joking.
Anyway this is how I use Quartz:
spring batch, one java class for the job and one for the task,
one XML file with 15 lines of code. That's it!

Quartz is very stable, open source and does the job perfectly well. I can setup a Quartz scheduler in less than an hour. The most difficult part is getting the cron schedule right and I use http://www.cronmaker.com/ for that. Piece of cake (and a hot cup of Java)!
I see absolutely no need to get commercial, on the contrary: license hassle, vendor lock-in, no source code,single point of support...
