provides a global utility for handling asynchron scripts
CronUtility provides a global utility for handling asynchron scripts (crons), it provides a view which handles registered crons and fires them if they are active.
To register a new cron, just create a global or local utility providing the ICron interface. The utility has to implement a “active” and “run” method.
CronUtility provides a view named “@@runRegisteredCrons” which has to be called regularly by a user having the ‘Manage portal’ permission. It is suggested to use zope clock server to call this view about ever minute or more, add the following configuration to your instance part’s zope-conf-additional variable:
<clock-server> method [PATH_TO_YOUR_PLONE_SITE]@@runRegisteredCrons period 60 user [MANAGER_USERID] password [MANAGER_PWD] host localhost </clock-server>
