- Calendar Management with the JobScheduler 1.x branch is focused on
- Run-time Rules based on days, weekdays, monthdays, ultimo days etc.
- Holiday Calendars that specify non-working days.
- Calendar Management with the 1.x branch includes a number of gaps:
- Sequence of Rules
- Run-time Rules are applied in first place,
- Rules for non-working days are applied in second place.
- This makes it hard to define specific rules such as the second last working day in a month.
- Scope of Periods
- Periods are by definition strictly focused on a single day and are re-calculated at midnight.
- This makes it almost impossible to define rules for repeated execution that would not fit into a period, as e.g. to execute a job every 5 hours or every 2nd day of a month.
- Calendar Range
- When used with weekday rules then Holiday Calendars do not specifiy a start date & end date and therefore cannot be used to specify e.g. a Sunday to be a holiday within the scope of specific months.
- Holiday Calendars cannot expire, therefore it is not possible e.g. to specify a job not to be executed starting from begin of next year.
- Sequence of Rules
- Business Day Calendars are introduced In addition to Holiday Calendars.
- Business Day alendars indicate possible days for job execution.
- Such calendars can be defined with national holidays being automatically offered for most countries.
- Business Day Calendars can be defined to indicate
- included dates
- excluded dates
- Business Date Calendars can be limited to a start date and end date. No execution will take place before and after this date.
- An order, job, or schedule can be assigned a number of Business Day Calendars that are merged to calculate the resulting days for job execution.
- A graphical interface is available with the JOC Cockpit to manage Business Day Calendars including any number of frequencies for included and excluded dates.
- Orders, jobs and schedules that make use of a Business Day Calendar are automatically assigned updated run-times in case of change of the calendar.
- This feature is introduced for the JobScheduler 1.x branch. It will replace the internal run-time calculation module of the JobScheduler Master.
- Holiday Calendars will be dropped with the JobScheduler 2.x branch as holidays can be specified as excluded dates within a Business Day Calendar.
