Problem adding the OpenWFEru scheduler code in Initialzers



I am using OpenWFEru gem for scheduling the weekly mailing in my rails
application. I have written the scheduler code as a stand-alone ruby
code. So I have to run it separately.

But I want this scheduler to start when I start my rails server. I tried
putting this ruby code in config/initializers. But the server is not
getting started as this scheduler code keeps on running.

Following is my ruby code in config/initializers.

require ‘openwfe/util/scheduler’
include OpenWFE

scheduler =

scheduler.schedule(‘0 9 * * 1’) do
system “ruby D:\Projects\Producteering\script\runner


Am I doing anything wrong? Or is there any way to achieve this?

Thanks in advance…
