Send Email with Generated PDF as attachment using schedule class ?

Hi,
1. I've created an apex class and visualforce page to send given report to given email id as a pdf and xls attacments, working fine.
2. And i know " getContent() and getContentAsPdf() " is not supported for schedulable class. So to overcome it i created  schedule class which will call the previously created apex class to send a report. I am getting 2 attachments but it does not contains any content in it.


Thanks !

This is complete process 
Schedule class:-
global class ScheduleFinacialNotification implements Schedulable {
global string sendSessionId;

global ScheduleFinacialNotification(String sessionId){
  this.sendSessionId = sessionId;
}
global void execute(SchedulableContext SC) {
     BatchSendFinacialNotification batchApex=new BatchSendFinacialNotification();
     batchApex.sessionId = this.sendSessionId;
     Database.executeBatch(batchApex,1);  }}

Batch class:-

global class BatchSendFinacialNotification implements Database.Batchable<sObject>,Database.Stateful,Database.AllowsCallouts {
public String query;
global string sessionId;
global BatchSendFinacialNotification(){
  this.sessionId  = sessionId;     
        query    = 'Select Id,Name,Project__r.Go_Live_Date__c from Service_Project_Junction__c ';
    }
    global Database.QueryLocator start(Database.BatchableContext BC){
        System.debug('=========='+Database.getQueryLocator(query));
        return Database.getQueryLocator(query);
    }
  
global void execute(Database.BatchableContext BC, List<Service_Project_Junction__c> scope) {
  //List<Service_Project_Junction__c> pojJunRecList = [Select Id,Name,Project__c,Opportunity_Deal__c,Project__r.Id,Project__r.Go_Live_Date__c,Product_Opportunity_Junction__r.Service__r.Service_Type__c,Product_Opportunity_Junction__r.Service__r.Product_Price__c,Product_Opportunity_Junction__r.No_Of_Months__c,Product_Opportunity_Junction__r.Total_Price__c,Product_Opportunity_Junction__r.No_Of_Listings__c from Service_Project_Junction__c where Opportunity_Deal__c != null AND Project__r.Go_Live_Date__c != null];
 
  for(Service_Project_Junction__c proRec: scope){
 
   Integer duration = integer.valueOf(proRec.Product_Opportunity_Junction__r.No_Of_Months__c);
   Integer totMonthTillToday = proRec.Project__r.Go_Live_Date__c.monthsBetween(System.today());
   System.debug('Test in for loop==>'+proRec);
   if(totMonthTillToday <= duration && proRec.Project__r.Go_Live_Date__c.Day() == Date.today().day()){
    System.debug(sessionId+'Test in if loop==>'+this.sessionId);
    ServiceInvoiceRedirectController.attachPdfToRecord( proRec.Project__r.Id, this.sessionId);
    System.debug('Test in if loop after condiyion==>');
   }
  }
}

global void finish(Database.BatchableContext BC){     
    }
  
}

            pdfPage.getParameters().put('id',recordId);
            Blob pdf = pdfPage.getContentAsPdf(); //!Test.isRunningTest() ? pdfPage.getContentAsPdf() : Blob.ValueOf('dummy text');
          
            Project__c prjRec = [Select Id,Name,Builder_Name__c from Project__c where Id =: recordId];

        }

        // call this method from your Batch Apex

Schedule class from Developer Console in Anonymous Window:-

Datetime sysTime = System.now();
sysTime = sysTime.addSeconds(5);
String chron_exp =' '+sysTime.second() + ' ' + sysTime.minute() + ' ' + sysTime.hour() + ' ' + sysTime.day() + ' ' + sysTime.month() + ' ? ' + sysTime.year();
System.schedule('Job1',chron_exp , new ScheduleFinacialNotification(UserInfo.getSessionId()));

Thanks Matthews ! I did it using trigger instead of batch class.
