    Talking job, kitchen and scheduling enhancement

    I suspect job scheduling is a weak link in PDI. We rarely run a job once manually. Scheduled runs are the norm. We end up throw kitchen tasks on schedulers.

    It would be nice if the scheduling in [Start] job entry were more flexible, as what you get from Windows task scheduler. This would require a scheduling engine onto which kitchen simply submits jobs. The engine provides status views, history and performance reporting, job persistence, recovery from machine shutdown, etc.
