Today Terracotta announced that it had acquired the Quartz job scheduling framework. Quartz is truly a ubiquitous Java open source framework, embedded in major containers and products like Spring, Confluence, Appfuse, Sakai, Liferay, etc.
As part of the Quartz migration we have:
- Same Apache 2 license
- James House continues as the primary developer on Quartz but now with the support of the Terracotta team
- New Quartz web site home
- New source repository
- New Fisheye support for the source repo
- New JIRA project
- New forum
- Same mailing lists for now
We are building a clustered Quartz implementation that will provide an easier way to configure a clustered JobStore without needing to set up a database. If you are interested in signing up for a beta of the Express clustered Quartz implementation:
Or to learn more, there is a webcast from Terracotta about Quartz on Tuesday December 15, 2009 at 11:00 am US Pacific time, 2:00 pm US Eastern time to discuss the Terracotta / Quartz integration and roadmap.
I’m really excited to welcome the Quartz project to the Terracotta family and I look forward to building some great products with James going forward.
