Java Cloud Service (JCS) provides a platform to develop and deploy
business applications in the cloud. In Fusion Applications Cloud
deployments customers do not have the option to deploy custom
applications developed with JDeveloper to ensure the integrity and
supportability of the hosted application service. Instead the custom
applications can be deployed to the JCS and integrated to the Fusion
Application Cloud instance.
This series of articles will go
through the features of JCS, provide end-to-end examples on how to
develop and deploy applications on JCS and how to integrate them with
the Fusion Applications instance.
Previous articles covered ADF web application; next we cover options to implement scheduling in JCS. Sometimes there are requirements for the ability to schedule large
transactions to run at a future time or automate the running of

unfortunately ESS is not available in JCS.
This article will cover an example of using the Timer and Worker API
and in future articles other options will be covered.[Read More
