Spring Batch

Spring Batch provides batch and bulk processing capabilities. The architecture is extremely robust and it provides parallel as well as scheduled batch processing. The API provides template and helper classes for repeatable and retryable operations which will be discussed in the following articles with suitable examples. The classes/interfaces in Spring Batch are not tied to a specified domain and thus it is possible to integrate an application in any business domain seamlessly. Look at the below architecture diagram to understand better about the spring batch components.

Spring Projects

There are number of sub-projects developed by Spring community. All of them are very useful and needed for the enterprise projects. One of the advantage of the spring framework is, you can plug the required projects into your development without adding all the libraries released by them. For example, if you want to use spring mvc in your project, just add that jar files.  You need not add all the jar files in the project which adds extra burden to your application. The projects include spring security, python, spring batch, spring LDAP, etc. The following are some of the articles explored on the different projects.
