Easy to set up, easy to use. Add the jar from jcenter and start creating jobs - no separate applications required.
Background jobs are regular java methods with regular arguments – no super class or interface implementation required.
Thanks to the built-in web interface, you have an overview of all your background jobs and observe the state of each job in detail.
Out of the box support for popular logging frameworks allows you to catch errors early with zero configuration.
Once a background job was created without any exception, JobRunr takes the responsibility to process it at least once.
You are free to throw unhandled exceptions or terminate your application – background jobs will be re-tried automatically.
Background method calls and their arguments are serialized to JSON and can travel over JVM instances.
You can use JobRunr on different machines to get more processing power with no configuration – synchronization is performed automatically.
Job filters allow you to add custom features to the background processing in a way similar to servlet filters.
Job storage access is fully abstracted and you can implement support for your favorite storage. Dashboard supports modifications too.
JobRunr takes just enough jobs into memory to process them efficiently and does not keep any locks on other jobs. This allows to distribute the jobs in the best possible manner.
You don't need to perform manual storage clean-up – JobRunr keeps it as clean as possible and removes succeeded jobs automatically.
