Periodic Task in Rails

Hi,

Does the rails framework supports the execution of periodic tasks?

Supose that I need to process RSS Feeds to update the database of the
web application. Is this possible?

Thanks,

Your best bet will probably be backgroundrb http://
backgroundrb.rubyforge.org/

scott.

or call rails code by using the runner, like this:
RAILS_ENV=development script/runner “p Product.find_all”
Put it in a cronjob to run it till the end of times :wink:
