I’m mostly doing batch these days, so I’m keeping an eye out for what’s happening with Spring Batch. It does have a lot of concepts that resemble what our home grown framework is built around, so I can relate to a lot of it. The same reason will also hopefully make us able to migrate to it in a little while. Given the excellent track record of the Spring portfolio of frameworks, I have no doubt that migrating to it will reduce and improve our code.
To check out some comments about the further process and an explanation of some of the core concepts, check out this blog entry.
