Quartz 2.1.0 has been released!

In this release, I have helped fixed some bugs, and added a new built-in trigger type: DailyTimeIntervalTrigger. This new trigger will allow you to specify a interval time in either seconds, minutes, or hours interval on each day (Like fire every 72 mins starting at 7am everyday). And the daily start time will be reset each day regardless what time it ended in that day! You may even limit daily ending time too. And you may limit the days to run on certain weekdays only as well. You may see many examples on how this trigger is used here:

Another feature worthy of note in this release is the "batch" mode is finally working! You may turn this on by using "org.quartz.scheduler.batchTriggerAcquisitionMaxCount" and "org.quartz.scheduler.batchTriggerAcquisitionFireAheadTimeWindowin your file. See config doc here:
I have created number of googlecode projects in attempt to try out new codes and ideas in the past. I now have links to all of them in my consolidated playground area

I also kept few Java project templates (Maven based) in there: These can get you started a project fairly quickly. See the README.txt in each for more details. I have added:
  * java-project-template
  * servlet-project-template
  * springmvc-project-template

There is also the "java-tool" with misc command line programs that I have collected over the years.

I also have stored a more reasonable preferences with Eclipse workspace, and few more custom Cygwin/Bash scripts setup.

All these are publicly and freely available (Apache License 2.0) if you find it useful. Enjoy!
Both myschedule-2.1.2 (for Quartz-2.1.0) and myschedule-1.5.2(for Quartz-1.8.5) releases are available for download here:

I have fixed few bugs and improved the UI slightly. Both of these releases should now deployable on Tomcat6, Tomcat7, and JBossAS servers!
