Spring Batch is an open source framework for batch processing. It is a lightweight, comprehensive solution designed to enable the development of robust batch applications,[1] which are often found in modern enterprise systems. Spring Batch builds upon the POJO-based development approach of the Spring Framework.[2]

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 though optimization and partitioning techniques.[2] Simple as well as complex, high-volume batch jobs can leverage the framework in a highly scalable manner to process significant volumes of information.[2]

Spring Batch is part of the Spring Portfolio.
