A scheduled task in WSO2 ESB Enterprise Integrator (WSO2 EI) allows you to run a piece of code triggered by a timer. WSO2 ESB EI provides a default scheduled task implementation, which you can use to inject a message to the ESB WSO2 EI at a scheduled interval. To activate the built-in task, you have to add it to the Tasks list.

For information on working with scheduled tasks via the ESB tooling plug-in, see Working with Scheduled Tasks via the ESB Tooling Plug-In.

For information on working with scheduled tasks via the Management Console, see Working with Scheduled Tasks via the Management ConsoleConsole.

You can also write your own scheduled task by creating a custom Java class that implements the org.apache.synapse.startup.Task interface. This interface defines a single method named execute(). For example, you could create a task that will read a text file at a specified location and place orders for stocks that are given in the text file. For more information, see Writing Tasks.
