Class ScheduledTimerListener

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.springframework.scheduling.commonj.ScheduledTimerListener

public class ScheduledTimerListener
extends java.lang.Object

JavaBean that describes a scheduled TimerListener, consisting of the TimerListener itself (or a Runnable to create a TimerListener for) and a delay plus period. Period needs to be specified; there is no point in a default for it.

The CommonJ TimerManager does not offer more sophisticated scheduling options such as cron expressions. Consider using Quartz for such advanced needs.

Note that the TimerManager uses a TimerListener instance that is shared between repeated executions, in contrast to Quartz which instantiates a new Job for each execution.

ScheduledTimerListener

public ScheduledTimerListener(commonj.timers.TimerListener timerListener)
Create a new ScheduledTimerListener, with default one-time execution without delay.

Parameters:
timerListener - the TimerListener to schedule

ScheduledTimerListener

public ScheduledTimerListener(commonj.timers.TimerListener timerListener,
                              long delay)
Create a new ScheduledTimerListener, with default one-time execution with the given delay.

Parameters:
timerListener - the TimerListener to schedule
delay - the delay before starting the task for the first time (ms)

ScheduledTimerListener

public ScheduledTimerListener(commonj.timers.TimerListener timerListener,
                              long delay,
                              long period,
                              boolean fixedRate)
Create a new ScheduledTimerListener.

Parameters:
timerListener - the TimerListener to schedule
delay - the delay before starting the task for the first time (ms)
period - the period between repeated task executions (ms)
fixedRate - whether to schedule as fixed-rate execution

ScheduledTimerListener

public ScheduledTimerListener(java.lang.Runnable timerTask)
Create a new ScheduledTimerListener, with default one-time execution without delay.

Parameters:
timerTask - the Runnable to schedule as TimerListener

ScheduledTimerListener

public ScheduledTimerListener(java.lang.Runnable timerTask,
                              long delay)
Create a new ScheduledTimerListener, with default one-time execution with the given delay.

Parameters:
timerTask - the Runnable to schedule as TimerListener
delay - the delay before starting the task for the first time (ms)

ScheduledTimerListener

public ScheduledTimerListener(java.lang.Runnable timerTask,
                              long delay,
                              long period,
                              boolean fixedRate)
Create a new ScheduledTimerListener.

Parameters:
timerTask - the Runnable to schedule as TimerListener
delay - the delay before starting the task for the first time (ms)
period - the period between repeated task executions (ms)
fixedRate - whether to schedule as fixed-rate execution
Method Detail

setRunnable

public void setRunnable(java.lang.Runnable timerTask)
Set the Runnable to schedule as TimerListener.

See Also:
DelegatingTimerListener

setTimerListener

public void setTimerListener(commonj.timers.TimerListener timerListener)
Set the TimerListener to schedule.


getTimerListener

public commonj.timers.TimerListener getTimerListener()
Return the TimerListener to schedule.


setDelay

public void setDelay(long delay)
Set the delay before starting the task for the first time, in milliseconds. Default is 0, immediately starting the task after successful scheduling.

If the "firstTime" property is specified, this property will be ignored. Specify one or the other, not both.


getDelay

public long getDelay()
Return the delay before starting the job for the first time.


setPeriod

public void setPeriod(long period)
Set the period between repeated task executions, in milliseconds.

Default is -1, leading to one-time execution. In case of zero or a positive value, the task will be executed repeatedly, with the given interval inbetween executions.

Note that the semantics of the period value vary between fixed-rate and fixed-delay execution.

Note: A period of 0 (for example as fixed delay) is supported, because the CommonJ specification defines this as a legal value. Hence a value of 0 will result in immediate re-execution after a job has finished (not in one-time execution like with java.util.Timer).

See Also:
setFixedRate(boolean), isOneTimeTask(), TimerManager.schedule(commonj.timers.TimerListener, long, long)

getPeriod

public long getPeriod()
Return the period between repeated task executions.


isOneTimeTask

public boolean isOneTimeTask()
Is this task only ever going to execute once?

Returns:
true if this task is only ever going to execute once
See Also:
getPeriod()

setFixedRate

public void setFixedRate(boolean fixedRate)
Set whether to schedule as fixed-rate execution, rather than fixed-delay execution. Default is "false", i.e. fixed delay.

See TimerManager javadoc for details on those execution modes.

See Also:
TimerManager.schedule(commonj.timers.TimerListener, long, long), TimerManager.scheduleAtFixedRate(commonj.timers.TimerListener, long, long)

isFixedRate

public boolean isFixedRate()
Return whether to schedule as fixed-rate execution.
