Class TriggerKey

  extended by org.quartz.utils.Key<TriggerKey>
      extended by org.quartz.TriggerKey
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<Key<TriggerKey>>

public final class TriggerKey
extends Key<TriggerKey>

Uniquely identifies a Trigger.

Keys are composed of both a name and group, and the name must be unique within the group. If only a name is specified then the default group name will be used.

Quartz provides a builder-style API for constructing scheduling-related entities via a Domain-Specific Language (DSL). The DSL can best be utilized through the usage of static imports of the methods on the classes TriggerBuilder, JobBuilder, DateBuilder, JobKey, TriggerKey and the various ScheduleBuilder implementations.

Client code can then use the DSL to write code such as this:

         JobDetail job = newJob(MyJob.class)
         Trigger trigger = newTrigger() 
             .withIdentity(triggerKey("myTrigger", "myTriggerGroup"))
             .startAt(futureDate(10, MINUTES))
         scheduler.scheduleJob(job, trigger);
