  • The use of the CRON scheduler in UNIX and Linux environments.

  • The use of several Windows schedulers including AT, SCHTASKS and the Scheduled Tasks Wizard.

  • An overview of the functionality of the Oracle scheduler prior to Oracle 10g.

  • An overview of the functionality of the Oracle 10g scheduler.

  • A feature comparison between the new and the old Oracle schedulers.
