GAE and cron


I’m using Vaadin on GAE and need to add a few cron tasks, are there any how-to:s on how to do this? Is it possible to hook up the Vaadin GAE servlet in any way and handle the cron task in a pojo (I guess not but it would be neet). Right now I have the GAEApplicationServlet mapped to handle all url:s (‘/*’), is this still possible if I add cron tasks to the mix?


Skip the last part regarding url-patterns, read the servlet spec instead…
