Dynamic Scheduler on given date in aem as a cloud service.

Avatar

Level 2

Hi Team,

 

I have a requirment. The requirment is, once the bundle got activated it has to get the date from page and create a scheduler with that date.

once scheduler gets triggered on given date and time it has to do some x task and again it has to get the date and time from page and schedule a new scheduler.

 

I have created a apache scheduler (org.apache.sling.commons.scheduler.Scheduler) and it's working in local but not in cloud (some times it worked but suddenly it stoped working with no errors in logs) and also i tried sling job (org.apache.sling.event.jobs.consumer.JobConsumer) it working in local but not in cloud. Could anyone help me to achive the requirement using scheduler or any other ways.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Naresh536 Yes the piece of code shared above by you, does not work.
Try out the using jobManager.addJob(JOB_TOPIC, props);

Code Snippet

@Override
    public void run() {
        Map<String, Object> props = new HashMap<>();
        jobManager.addJob(JOB_TOPIC, props);
    }

 This worked for us.

Hope this helps!

Thanks

Hi @Naresh536 There are issue with scheduler on AEM Cloud instance.

It is recommended to use the Sling Jobs for writing the business logic to be executed at a particular time.

 

@Component(immediate=true, service=Runnable.class, property = {Constants.SERVICE_ID + "=Test Scheduler"}
public class Test implements Runnable {

   @Reference
    private JobManager jobManager;

   @Reference
    private Scheduler scheduler;

   @Override
    public void run() {
        Map<String, Object> props = new HashMap<>();
        jobManager.addJob(JOB_TOPIC, props);
    }
   @Activate
   @Modified
    protected void activate(final Config config) {
        scheduler.unschedule("scheduler-name");
        final ScheduleOptions scheduleOptions = scheduler.EXPR(<Scheduler-CRON-EXP>);
            scheduleOptions.name("scheduler-name");
            scheduleOptions.canRunConcurrently(false);
            scheduler.schedule(this, scheduleOptions);
    }
}

 

 Now create the JobConsumer class and make sure the job topic is same in this and the above scheduler class.

Create a common static reference in JobConsumer and use in the Scheduler as shown in the sample code.

 

 

public static final String JOB_TOPIC = "job/test";

 

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the response @Shailesh_Bassi_ .

 

I have implemented the same jobManager. it worked in local but not in  cloud. i have followed the below link

https://blog.developer.adobe.com/handling-sling-schedulers-in-aem-as-a-cloud-service-cb59d5e59e9

Below will be called from active method.


pblic void startScheduledJob() {
Collection<ScheduledJobInfo> myJobs = jobManager.getScheduledJobs();
if (myJobs.isEmpty()) {
Calendar cal = getPageTTL();
ScheduleBuilder scheduleBuilder = jobManager.createJob(TOPIC).schedule();
cal.add(Calendar.MINUTE, 1);
Date date = new Date(cal.getTimeInMillis());
scheduleBuilder.at(date);
if (scheduleBuilder.add() == null) {
LOGGER.info("is empty LOGGER");
// something went wrong here, use scheduleBuilder.add(List<String>) instead to get further information about the error
} else {
LOGGER.info("is non empty LOGGER::{}",date);
}
}
