synchronizing the TASK_CALENDAR with the IYB_TIMER table didn’t work with the change to liberty

What we were trying to do with the V3 code for synchronizing the TASK_CALENDAR with the IYB_TIMER table didn’t work with the change to liberty. It appears that the V4 product uses Enterprise Java Beans (EJB’s) timers now. So to synchronize the TASK_CALENDAR table to the IYB_EJB_TIMER table we have to be run where an EJB can reside (which is part of the product). Since SF Tasks can’t do that the task written for V3 won’t work in V4.

We would like IBM to address this by putting calendar synchronization into the base product. This means that a customer can load the TASK_CALENDAR using a DSU workbook which import the task calendar entries. When the services engine POD is bounced the task calendar loaded is synchronized to Websphere liberty’s EJB timers if any changes are found. There are 3 parts to the synchronization:

  • Delete IYB_EJB_TIMER tasks that are no longer in the TASK_CALENDAR table.

  • Insert IYB_EJB_TIMER tasks that for each TASK_CALENDAR row that isn’t found I the IYB_EJB_TIMER.

  • Update any IYB_EJB_TIMER tasks that are different than the TASK_CALENDAR rows.
