Description of this book

Batch processing consists in key applications which are frequently required by companies whatever their size. They allow implementing automatic processing of large volumes of information and synchronization between company applications and systems. The Java Open Source community didn’t provide any robust and convenient batch frameworks before Spring Batch. As a matter of fact, the later answers to this recurring need and aims to address this lack by providing a complete development frame for batch applications. It provides generic entities and processing for batch applications. With this tool, only developing specific elements is now required and no more “from scratch” development is needed for batch applications. Developers can focus on features specific for the company. Moreover, Spring Batch leverages the Spring programming model, based on POJOs and aspect-oriented programming, in order to simplify batch configuration and user processing implementation.

Spring Batch in Action is a comprehensive, in-depth coverage of the Spring Batch project, written for developers who have basic knowledge of Java and the Spring lightweight container. It provides the necessary background for batch issues and key entities of Spring Batch. You’ll also find how to configure and run batch applications but also how to implement entities to read and write data. The book will cover different strategies to handle errors on items occurring during batch processing. You will also appreciate the comprehensive coverage from the foundations to advanced issues like monitoring, tuning, enterprise integration and unit tests.
