Utilizing this technique, a series of tasks can be concurrently processed, returning results that can be later used
to formulate a response. In the case of this example, a report is constructed by calling two task classes and returning
the results of queried information. This same technique can be applied to an array of different tasks, allowing an
application to process the results of multiple task invocations in one central location.
Scheduled Tasks
To schedule a task to run at specific times, utilize the javax.concurrent.ManagedScheduledExecutorService
interface. This interface extends the java.util.concurrent.ScheduledExecutorService and
javax.enterprise.concurrent.ManagedExecutorService interfaces. The ManagedScheduleExecutorService can
be used to execute a Runnable task according to a specified schedule.
The Executor Service
As mentioned previously, a ManagedScheduleExecutorService can be used to schedule Runnable tasks. That is, any
class that implements java.lang.Runnable can be invoked via the service. The code that is contained within the task
class's run method is invoked each time the task is initiated. In the example that follows, the run method executes
another method within the class that is used to query an entity and perform some work against the results.
To make use of a ManagedScheduledExecutorService , one can be created within the application server
container. Similarly to the ManagedExecutorService , this resource can be created by issuing the asadmin
create-managed-scheduled-executor-service command. The GlassFish 4.0 application server also contains
a panel within the administrative console for creation of such resources. To create the resource from within the
administrative console, log in and navigate to the Resources Concurrent Resources Managed Scheduled
Executor Services panel (Figure 11-3 ).
