With this release, JobServer now supports expanded remote web services programatic APIs. Also included in this release is the capability to run distributed jobs under customizable Linux/Unix userspace accounts on a job by job basis, which gives administrators fined grained control over how they run their jobs. This allows users to run jobs inside isolated JVMs in a more granular fashion.
It has always been the goal of JobServer to be a developer and IT focused scheduling and job processing platform. We are proud of our focus on taking customer and developer feedback to continuously make JobServer the best scheduling and job processing engine around. JobServer tames your job processing and scheduling environment in a way that is a joy for Java developers to customize upon while providing powerful web UI management and administration features for business users and IT operations administrators.
