Spring Batch application
Posted on 2013-11-08
I have a simple application thats i wrote. This application is launched via Control-M so essentially its a job that runs on a scheduler...
I wrote it in java. I would re-write it using spring batch. I've never worked with spring batch before so i would just like to quickly break down what my current application does and see which components / parts of it i can convert using spring batch.
Process (very straight forward - 6 steps):
1 go to ftp
2 grab files
3 read lines in file
4 convert each line into some type of records
5 do some data manipulation with the records
6 create Json strings and send them further into the pipeline.
thats it. this job is called at a certain time and runs daily.
Which part of this can i modify to use spring batch? - From what i've read, i can convert step 1, 2, 3. Am i right or is spring batch more powerful and can do more?
