Synopses & Reviews
Spring Batch in Action is an in-depth guide to writing batch applications using Spring Batch. Written for developers who have basic knowledge of Java and the Spring lightweight container, the book provides both a best-practices approach to writing batch jobs and comprehensive coverage of the Spring Batch framework. About the Technology
Even though running batch jobs is a common task, there's no standard way to write them. Spring Batch is a framework for writing batch applications in Java. It includes reusable components and a solid runtime environment, so you don't have to start a new project from scratch. And it uses Spring's familiar programming model to simplify configuration and implementation, so it'll be comfortably familiar to most Java developers. About the Book
Spring Batch in Action is a thorough, in-depth guide to writing efficient batch applications. Starting with the basics, it discusses the best practices of batch jobs along with details of the Spring Batch framework. You'll learn by working through dozens of practical, reusable examples in key areas like monitoring, tuning, enterprise integration, and automated testing.
No prior batch programming experience is required. Basic knowledge of Java and Spring is assumed.

Even though running batch processes is an everyday task in almost all IT departments, Java developers have had few options for writing batch applications. The result? No standards, poor code reusability, numerous in-house solutions, and lots of frustrated developers. Jointly developed by SpringSource and Accenture, Spring Batch fills this critical gap by providing a robust and convenient framework for writing batch applications that process large volumes of information, automate repetitive tasks, and synchronize internal systems.
Spring Batch in Action is a comprehensive, in-depth guide to writing batch applications using Spring Batch. Written for developers who have basic knowledge of Java and the Spring lightweight container, it provides both a best-practices approach to writing batch jobs and comprehensive coverage of the Spring Batch framework.
