It also provides more advance technical services and features that will enable extremely high-volume and high performance batch jobs though optimization and partitioning techniques.

Many applications within the enterprise domain require bulk processing to perform business operations in mission critical environments.
While open source software projects and associated communities have focused greater attention on web-based and SOA messaging-based architecture frameworks, there has been a notable lack of focus on reusable architecture frameworks to accommodate Java-based batch processing needs, despite continued needs to handle such processing within enterprise IT environments.month-end calculations, notices or correspondence), periodic application of complex business rules processed repetitively across very large data sets (e.g.Insurance benefit determination or rate adjustments), or the integration of information that is received from internal and external systems that typically requires formatting, validation and processing in a transactional manner into the system of record.The lack of a standard, reusable batch architecture has resulted in the proliferation of many one-off, in-house solutions developed within client enterprise IT functions.
Batch processing is used to process billions of transactions every day for enterprises.
Spring Batch is a lightweight, comprehensive batch framework designed to enable the development of robust batch applications vital for the daily operations of enterprise systems.
