Scheduling batch class for every 5 minutes using system.schedule method in salesforce

Batch_scheduledclassname bs = new Batch_scheduledclassname bs();
String sch = '0 6 * * * ? ';
System.schedule('My Job1', sch, bs);

Note: While writing schedular class don't forget to use datebase.executeBatch method which inturn will run the apex batch class.
* Above 6 means every hour 6th minute.
* If you want to schedule the calss for every 5 minutes then you need paste above code with some changes for 10 times in developer console.
* Changes are:
- instead of 6 replace with 12,18,24..... like that.
- Change the Batch Job name My Job1 to some other name whenever we want to submit new job

  4. Hi Srini, This leaves the finished/scheduled jobs in the list and creates a new job everytime. Is there a way to update the same job to run every 5 mins without creating a new job.
