3.5. Summary

Spring Batch provides facilities to ease configuration of batch processes. These facilities are based on Spring Batch XML—an XML vocabulary dedicated to the batch domain—which leverages Spring XML. This vocabulary can configure all batch entities described in chapter 2, such as jobs, tasklets, and chunks. Spring Batch supports entity hierarchies in its XML configuration and closely interacts with Spring XML to use Spring beans.

XML configuration of batch processes is built in and allows plug-in strategies to handle errors and transactions. All these features contribute to making batches more robust by providing support for commit intervals, skip handling, and retry, among other tasks. We focus on batch robustness in chapter 8.
