What is JEF API?

JEF stands for Job Execution Framework and is first and foremost a Java API library. It is meant to facilitate the lives of developers and integrators who have to build any kind of maintenance tasks on a server. JEF let’s you build those jobs as you normally would using Java. Then, JEF strives to make it easier by offering a set of “out-of-the-box” functionalities that would otherwise be tedious and sometimes costly to do from scratch. These functionalities includes:

  • Better error handing and reporting
  • Crash recovery (resuming jobs where they failed)
  • Self-diagnostics of process issues
  • Email notification (upon success, failure, etc.)
  • Chaining of individual jobs (synchronous or asynchronous)
  • Centralized process logging
  • More robust execution of system commands

Norconex also provides JEF Monitor, a browser-based application offering a glance view of all running jobs, with possibilities to perform actions on them.
