How to use windows SchedulesTask and Cron for Mac in AIR to schedule a job?
You can have an AIR application run at user log-in, and then the application can run processes based on a timer.

Operating systems also include means to schedule the launch applications (including AIR applications). For example, you can use chron on Mac OS or Linux. And you can use Task Manager on Windows.
Use cron or Windows Task Manager like you would with any other installed application. Have it launch the exe (windows) or app file that is installed for the AIR application.
Jeff, I need to schedule a job and run in backgrond. Task Manager will invoke the AIR application, once AIR process completes the process, it should shuts down. Is there any way to access ScheduledTask API for windows and Cron for Mac programatically through AIR to create Task?
You cannot use AIR access the Windows Schedule Task API or the Mac chron application.
Since we cannot access os api. Can anyone please point me to a sample or doc on how to implement background job scheduler, which we run on scheduled times to process the request in windows/mac. Thanks for your help.
Please help me on how to develop custom background job scheduling application.
