Rails + batch jobs

Hi Daan,   If your trying to run a job that will need to be run from time to time manually, then you should write a rake task and put it in your lib/tasks/ directory. If your trying to run something automated then you need to look at BackgroundRB [1] or RailsCron[2]. Note that RailsCron is no longer supported, but I still like it better than BackgroundRB.

Good Luck, Rob Kaufman
