Quartz – scheduling tasks in C#

Quartz is a scheduling library. You can run your task periodically.
This is how scheduler and it’s triggers can be configured.

        private static void ConfigureScheduler()
            var scheduler = new StdSchedulerFactory().GetScheduler();
            var job = JobBuilder.Create<PrintDateTimeJob>()

            var trigger = TriggerBuilder.Create()
                .StartAt(new DateTimeOffset(2000, 1, 1, 10, 0, 0, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(0)))
                .WithSimpleSchedule(x => x.WithIntervalInSeconds(5).RepeatForever())

            scheduler.ScheduleJob(job, trigger);


Your task class must implement IJob interface.

    class PrintDateTimeJob : IJob
        public void Execute(IJobExecutionContext context)
            Console.WriteLine("Current date and time: " + DateTime.Now.ToLongTimeString());

Code above will schedule simple job (printing current time) every 5 seconds. This is a simple example only. For detailed information go to: Quartz.NET.
