we have some idea for contributions to CloudFoundry, but we would like to
discuss them first with you...
Maybe we could do a hangout/Skype sometime? This would allow us to present
briefly our project ( and possible contributions.
Thanks a lot,

there is ongoing work to support process types using buildpacks, so that
the same application codebase could be used for multiple different types of
processes (web, worker, etc).

once process types and diego tasks are fully available, we expect to
implement a user-facing api for running batch jobs as application processes.

what people do today is run a long-running process application which uses
something like quartz scheduler [1] or ruby clock with a worker system like
resque [2]

To complete my request, I'm thinking of something like this in the

- name: virusscan
memory: 512M
instances: 1

*schedule: - startFrom : a date endBefore : a date
walltime : a duration*
* precedence : other application name moldable :

What do you think?

Hi guys,
just to know, is there a project to add a job scheduler in Cloud
I'm thinking of something like the Heroku scheduler (
That would be very neat to have regular tasks triggered...
