Oddjob

Oddjob is a Java job scheduler and task automation framework. A GUI designer or XML are used to define a hierarchy of jobs. Sequential, parallel, and conditional execution (or combinations) allow for nearly any business process to be modelled. Oddjob can run on the desktop or on a server and uses JMX to control remote instances via an Explorer-style GUI. Basic Web-based monitoring is also available. It can be embedded in client code and is easily extensible via a simple API.
