Timer mBean


I am currently in the process of migrating our enterprise application from Jboss to Netweaver.

one of the components we had in our application was a <b>Timer mBean</b> which used to be deployed inside Jboss and registered as a Timer Service. We had notification Listeners to this Timer service, which when fired would trigger a transaction on the server.

<i>Do we have a similar service on Netweaver- i think i came across a 'Timeout'Service - has anyone ever used it?</i>

<i>Also,can i write my own Timer mBean and deploy it on SAp WAS? If so can anyone please point me to the steps involved in depoying an mBean.</i>

Any help is much appreciated, alternatives are welcome too.

best regards]

    Sorry for being too abstract, but according to JMX specs, Timer server must be available within every JMX implementation. So it is available with SAP WebAS too.

      Hi Brian,

      Thanks for the suggestions, much appreciate it. funny enough i had printed out both the documents you attached links for but its something that never clicked in mind because i was still looking for a way to implement my Timer mBean. However your post has made me go back and thoroughly go through both the documents.

      It seems i should be able to write my own Timer mBean and register it using a servlet. Maybe thats the only way because i haven;t been able to use the Timeout service already in SAP WAS.

      I'll update this post once i have a solution, who knows may even write a weblog and score some points.

      Thanks again mate.
