Thanks for that, too!  We appreciate the note.

It is possible to use Quartz to fire events to an MDB via a standard  
Java EE Connector.  That will work in any compliant EJB container.

We don't have a formal tutorial, but the question has come up and this  
post gives quite a few details:

For EJB 3.1 there is a new @Schedule annotation which will be really  
quite fantastic.  Our implementation will use Quartz under the  
covers.  We have some work on this now, but nothing complete yet.  But  
a deeper integration is planned.

Hope this helps!
