4.2 Creating the Job Definition and Job Implementation

The Job Definition is XML that defines the parameters required to perform the job. This includes the schedule, scope, and notification parameters as well as the path to the Job Implementation file. To create the XML, see Jobs DTD in the Identity Manager 3.6 DTD Reference.

The Job Implementation is a JAR file that contains the Java classes required to perform the job. Novell does not provide instructions for creating the Job Implementation. The only requirement is that the Java classes run in the Identity Manager server’s Java Runtime Environment. For more information, see Javadocs for the job interface.
