Spring Batch application

Hi,
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?

Thanks,

Yes, Spring Batch can probably do 1, 2, 3 out of the box, with no coding on your part, just configuration. But it is highly likely that it can do the rest, just that you need to code the important parts yourself, ie. the actual code to do the conversion of lines of the file and the data manipulation. What Spring Batch provides though is the framework around such things, so you don't have to worry about coding the scheduling, or the pipeline between stages, or the retry handling, etc, etc. You just have to code the pure business logic, and then pass that to Spring Batch for it to manage the job, and the steps in the job.

If you are after advice on how to use it for specifically for your situation, then you would need to provide a bit more detail about the steps that you have listed.
