Paramus, NJ - February 8, 2002 - ndus Consultancy Services (ICS) today announced the latest in a series of improvements to Kronos Enterprise Scheduler, a full-featured job scheduling system written for the Enterprise Java (J2EE) environment.

In a continuing effort to support the widest range of J2EE-certified application servers, Kronos Enterprise Scheduler 3.30 adds support for IBM WebSphere 4.0. This announcement comes close on the heels of the introduction of support for Macromedia JRun 3.1, Enterprise Edition, and the latest versions of the jBoss application server and Tomcat webserver. "Kronos Enterprise Scheduler is a J2EE-compliant application, and as such should run on any J2EE-certified application server," explained Dale V. Georg, Product Manager. "But one of our goals is to add as many app servers into our official test suite as possible. Which servers we test against is primarily driven by customer request."

Another change in Version 3.30 is an enhancement to a feature introduced in Version 3.10, namely Result File Tracking. With Result File Tracking, files generated by a job execution on a remote machine can be viewed by users at their workstations. For example, a job might generate a series of PDF reports, which a user could then view via the Job Monitor. In Version 3.10, however, the files had to be available via a network share. Version 3.30 removes this restriction by allowing for a behind-the-scenes download of the files to the userís workstation.

ICS is also proud to have Kronos Enterprise Scheduler competing in the Java Developerís Journal 2002 Readersí Choice Awards. Every year , Java Developerís Journal holds voting for products in a variety of categories. This year, Kronos Enterprise Scheduler is nominated in three of those categories:
