Why DBMS_SCHEDULER and not DBMS_JOB?
DBMS_SCHEDULER superseded DBMS_JOB starting with Oracle 10gR1. DBMS_JOB wasmade available with Oracle 7.2 and although it still exists in 10g and 11g, no new features arebeing added to it. Oracle recommends you use DBMS_SCHEDULER in releases 10g and up.DBMS_SCHEDULER is more robust and fully-featured than DBMS_JOB. It includes thefollowing features that DBMS_JOB does not have:Extensive logging of job runs including logging run historySimple yet very powerful scheduling syntaxRunning of jobs outside of the database on the operating systemRunning of jobs on remote machinesResource management between different classes of jobsUse of job arguments including passing of objects into stored proceduresPrivilege-based security model for jobsNaming of jobs and comments in jobsStored, reusable schedulesDependencies between job units (Job chains)Event based jobs which run when an event is receivedE-mail notifications on job events of interestStarting a job based on arrival of a fileNote: Some of the above features were introduced in 11g.
What about cron?
cron is a job scheduling utility that is ubiquitous in Linux/Unix environments. The following aresome of the benefits that DBMS_SCHEDULER has over cron, in other words, features that crondoes not have:Can make the execution of a job dependent on the completion of another jobHas robust resource balancing and flexible scheduling featuresCan run jobs based on a database eventHas syntax that works the same regardless of the operating systemCan run status reports using the data dictionary
