Timers

  

Can any one suggest Excercise materials or guided paths for learning timers?

Hi Ajith

when you implement the timers using above methods, if you want to learn more, run the timer and go to Service Center and check the Timers logs it will fetch you more details.


Also from factory go to the module where Timer is implemented and check Timer details over there.

You can refer these posts also.

Also you need to remember one important thing about Timeout.

By default Timer has Timeout of 20 minutes. you can change the Timeout from Service Center or from code. Note that logic which you have implemented inside the Timer if not completed within Timeout duration, Timer will retry his operation for 2 times and after 2 retries Timer is killed.

You also need to be careful about Thread abortion issue in Timer.
