Ok, thanks for advice :-) . I explored Seam Cron JIRA and made some
comments and tickets.

Thanks for the ideas. I know Peter has been very busy over the past
few weeks with his normal job. My advice would be to create JIRA
tickets if they don't exist and start issuing pull requests to help us

Recently I tested Seam Cron module, especially scheduling
features. From my point of view Seam Cron module (as well as Seam
2) is still not usable for quite common scheduling scenarios.
Below are some comments/observations/suggestions - most of them
come from real app needs and are closely related to quartz because
I used this lib in many JEE apps before.
In any case I don't want to criticize but make Seam 3 more useful
:-) ! If needed I can offer some help.
* *Seam Cron has fixed quartz configuration* (no way to change
it); this is not a good idea and will surely limit module user
* *I'm missing operations on scheduler*; e.g. send event to pause
or resume all jobs (API)
* *job observers "may be/and may inject" @Dependant or
@ApplicationScoped beans only*; sometimes its very useful to reuse
request scoped components - e.g. inject service used also from GUI
(API/QUARTZ, in weld/quartz this could be accomplished with
* *it's not possible to schedule jobs dynamically* - for instance
first get definitions (DB, XML, WS) and then schedule them (API,
maybe schedule job by firing some special event)
* *fired jobs are always stateless*; sometimes its very practical
to have stateful jobs / implement org.quartz.StatefulJob (API,
QUARTZ - org.jboss.seam.cron.scheduling.quartz.TriggerJob
* *trigger may contain next fire time info* - sometimes very
practical to know (API - org.jboss.seam.cron.api.scheduling.Trigger)
* *finally is there a reason not to use new stable versions of
quartz, e.g. 1.8.x or 2.0.x*?
