IllegalArgumentException: timeout value is negative

                 Key: SEAMCRON-37
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/SEAMCRON-37
             Project: Seam Cron
          Issue Type: Task
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0.Alpha1
         Environment: Tomcat 7.0.16, JDK6, Weld 1.1.0
            Reporter: Christian Kaltepoth
            Assignee: Peter Royle

I'm using Seam Cron to implement some background processing stuff in my application. Unfortunately after a few days the Quartz scheduler dies with this exception:

2011-08-05 22:54:56,157 ERROR [QuartzSchedulerThread] Runtime error occured in main trigger firing loop.
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: timeout value is negative
	at java.lang.Object.wait(Native Method)
	at org.quartz.core.QuartzSchedulerThread.run(QuartzSchedulerThread.java:296)

I did some research and found out that this is a known bug of Quartz 1.6.1. For details see the upstream issue:


This bug has been fixed in Quartz 1.6.2. So I think it would make sense to update the Quartz dependency of Seam Cron to the most recent Quartz version which is 1.6.5.
