    Database agents

    Hi all,

    currently doing some research, hope to get some input.

    Which database server software out there provide some form of time-based job scheduling, without the use of an external application?

    For example, configuring the server to run a UPDATE query at 12am. This, without configuring an external app to send the query to the server.

    I'm aware that MS SQL Server provides this kind of functionality, but are there any others? I suppose Oracle and other enterprise-class DBs?

    Time scheduled jobs can be accomplished with the DBMS_JOB package in Oracle.
