Spring Batch provides reusable functions that are essential in processing large volumes of records, including logging/tracing, transaction management, job processing statistics, job restart, skip, and resource management. It also provides more advanced technical services and features that will enable extremely high-volume and high performance batch jobs through optimization and partitioning techniques. Simple as well as complex, high-volume batch jobs can leverage the framework in a highly scalable manner to process significant volumes of information.

Features

  • Transaction management
  • Chunk based processing
  • Declarative I/O
  • Start/Stop/Restart
  • Rety/Skip
  • Web based administration interface (Spring Batch Admin)
