Mobile Foundation Quartz Updates

Mobile Foundation runtime bundles the required libraries including a few third party libraries. Mobile Foundation uses Quartz job schedulers and includes quartz2.2.0.jar.

Quartz contains an update check feature that connects to the server, to check if there is a new version of Quartz available for download. This check runs asynchronously and does not affect the startup/initialization time of Quartz, and it fails gracefully if the connection cannot be made. If the check runs, and an update is found, it will be reported as available in Quartz’s logs.

The above update check can be disabled using the flag, org.quartz.scheduler.skipUpdateCheck = true Liberty deployment of Mobile Foundation creates a jvm.options file and during deployment through Server Configuration Tool, the newly created jvm.options file will include this property.

In the case of WebSphere Application Server (WAS) deployments, the above JNDI property needs to be added in the environment property of the Mobile Foundation application from the WAS admin console.
