Interface21 and Accenture have annouced their ‘Spring Batch’ addition to the Spring Framework this week which gives a framework for build batch processing applications in Java.
Rod Johnson of Interface21 and Wayne Lund of Accenture will be jointly presenting this week at JavaOne giving an overview of this new framework. The framework was developed by Accenture and was ‘harvested’ from projects using the technology, enhaced to take full advantage of the Spring Framework and then donated to Open Source with Interface 21’s help.
The new framework has been getting at lot of positive attention on news sites across the internet, for example, this article on eWeek.
See the project website for more information.
