Carbon Scheduler Module

Printer Friendly Version


The Scheduler service allows Carbon components to execute functionality at configurable times or intervals. Carbon components implement a Schedulable interface that a Scheduler will call into. The Scheduler is then configured to call the component at a fixed time, similar to cron, or at a specified interval.

Useful examples may include scheduling engines that cleans up temporary files every hour, or an e-Mail engine that sends out messages to users at close of market each day. Other examples might include forcing a caching component to reload each day at a specific time.
