We are in the process of building ant scripts for our deployments. We have scheduled apex jobs which run every 3 minutes to process some functions and currently our deploy targets are failing because it is complaining of schedulable class has jobs running. We cannot stop these jobs to facilitate the deployment. What is the solution to get around this? Anybody has any thoughts on this Thanks Buyan

Basically, you use the type for interface to avoid the class you are invoking from the scheduled class from being serialized...
