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.
PRUN is a cluster job scheduler and parallel task executor system for Linux/Unix systems. Like other full-featured batch systems, it provides a job queueing mechanism, job scheduling, a priority scheme, resource monitoring, and resource management. PRUN is a simple, easy-to-use, full-featured, stable solution to run short-term or long-term jobs across the cluster.
