JobScheduler stores information about the individual objects it processes - jobs, job chains, orders, schedules, etc. - in the form of flat XML files.
These objects are stored in a so-called "live" folder where objects can be added, modified and deleted whilst the JobScheduler is running.
JobScheduler objects in the 'live' folder are persistent - that is, they are not lost when the JobScheduler is restarted.
The XML object files can be edited using a code editor or using the JOE - JobScheduler Object Editor.
The advantages of the use of flat files to store JobScheduler object information include:
- integration in a versioning system (see Audit trail)
