Running an autoscheduled task

John Doran (9182) | asked Apr 13 '09, 8:26 p.m.

I am trying to create my own auto-scheduled task. I don't know how to run it. I've been searching through the source code but I can't find what I need.

I have these parts ...

MyTask extends AbstractAutoScheduledTask 


public String getTaskId() {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub"getTaskId");

return TASK_ID;


protected void runTask() throws TeamRepositoryException {"runTask");
//cancel it after I run it for testing

and I am trying to get it scheduled from another service ...

//services needed

IAsynchronousTaskSchedulerService asynchTaskScheduleService = getAsynchTaskSchedulerService();

MyTask myTask = new MyTask();

// schedule/start task
String taskId = myTask.getTaskId();
String componentId = myTask.getComponentId();
asynchTaskScheduleService.schedule(componentId, taskId);

I get an error that
Failed to get the component id for service ... 

I am thinking that maybe I need to register the task to get a component Id but I am not sure how. Assistance would be greatly appreciated!

I think I am understanding this more now.


I need to specify my asynch task in plugin.xml following the example of ChangeEventScrubber.

Then I can schedule/unschedule it?
