A Quick Guide To Enterprise Batch Processing With Jakarta Batch-1Understanding Batch Processing

Batch processing involves breaking down data loads into smaller chunks and processing them systematically without requiring human intervention. Jakarta Batch, the standard specification on the Jakarta EE platform, provides a structured approach to creating batch processing tasks.

At the core of Jakarta Batch is the concept of batch jobs, which encapsulate instructions for running specific tasks. These jobs consist of steps, each representing a logical unit of work within the job.

A batch job contains various components, including:

  • Job-level properties: they provide global configuration settings for the entire job
  • Listeners: they allow you to hook into different events throughout the job lifecycle
  • Steps: they represent individual units of work within the job
  • Chunks: they define the atomic units of work within each step.
