Getting started with spring-batch – Setup Using Maven and Java Config

Prerequisites

  • Have Maven installed.
  • Have an IDE installed such as Intellij, Eclipse, or NetBeans.

Create a Maven project

Create a Maven project with the standard project structure (i.e. Group ID as com.organization.app and Artifact ID as SpringBatchExample:

SpringBatchExample
|-- pom.xml
`-- src
    |-- main
    |   `-- java
    |       `-- com
    |           `-- organization
    |               `-- app
    |  `-- resources
    `-- test
        `-- java
            `-- com
                `-- organization
                    `-- app

Creating a Spring Batch Hello World Program

A Spring Batch job requires a Spring configuration. In this example, a Java configuration will be used.

Set up the dependencies in pom.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
         xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
         xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0
                             http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">
    <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>

                    <target>1.8</target>
                </configuration>
            </plugin>
        </plugins>
    </build>

        <dependency>

            <artifactId>spring-batch-core</artifactId>
            <version>3.0.7.RELEASE</version>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>commons-logging</groupId>
            <artifactId>commons-logging</artifactId>
            <version>1.1.1</version>
        </dependency>
    </dependencies>
</project>

Under the src/main/java/com/organization/app package, create SpringBatchHelloWorldConfig.java. This Spring Batch program will read a list of Employees from a flat file, convert the names to upper case, and print out all of the Employee information:

@Configuration
@EnableBatchProcessing
public class SpringBatchHelloWorldConfig {

    @Autowired
    private JobBuilderFactory jobBuilderFactory;

    @Autowired
    private StepBuilderFactory stepBuilderFactory;

    @Bean
    public Step step1() {
        return stepBuilderFactory.get("step1")
                .<Employee, Employee>chunk(2)
                .reader(employeeItemReader())
                .processor(employeeItemProcessor())
                .writer(employeeItemWriter())
                .build();
    }

    @Bean
    public Job listEmployeesJob(Step step1) throws Exception {
        return jobBuilderFactory.get("listEmployeesJob")
                .start(step1)
                .build();
    }

    @Bean
    ItemReader<Employee> employeeItemReader() {
        
        FlatFileItemReader<Employee> reader = new FlatFileItemReader<>();
        reader.setResource(new ClassPathResource("employees.csv"));

        DefaultLineMapper defaultLineMapper = new DefaultLineMapper();
        DelimitedLineTokenizer delimitedLineTokenizer = new DelimitedLineTokenizer();
        delimitedLineTokenizer.setNames(new String[] {"firstName", "lastName", "age", "salary"});

        BeanWrapperFieldSetMapper<Employee> fieldSetMapper = new BeanWrapperFieldSetMapper<>();
        fieldSetMapper.setTargetType(Employee.class);

        defaultLineMapper.setLineTokenizer(delimitedLineTokenizer);
        defaultLineMapper.setFieldSetMapper(fieldSetMapper);
        reader.setLineMapper(defaultLineMapper);

        return reader;
    }

    @Bean
    ItemProcessor<Employee, Employee> employeeItemProcessor() {
        return new ItemProcessor<Employee, Employee>() {
            @Override
            public Employee process(Employee employee) throws Exception {
                employee.setFirstName(employee.getFirstName().toUpperCase());
                employee.setLastName(employee.getLastName().toUpperCase());
                return employee;
            }
        };
    }
    
    @Bean
    ItemWriter<Employee> employeeItemWriter() {
        return new ItemWriter<Employee>() {
            @Override
            public void write(List<? extends Employee> employeesList) throws Exception {
                for (Employee employee : employeesList) {
                    System.out.println("Name: "
                            + employee.getFirstName() + " "
                            + employee.getLastName() + "; "
                            + "Age: " + employee.getAge() + "; "
                            + "Salary: " + employee.getSalary());
                }
            }
        };
    }
}

Employee.java:

public class Employee {
    private String firstName;
    private String lastName;
    private int age;
    private int salary;

    public String getFirstName() {
        return firstName;
    }

    public void setFirstName(String firstName) {
        this.firstName = firstName;
    }

    public String getLastName() {
        return lastName;
    }

    public void setLastName(String lastName) {
        this.lastName = lastName;
    }

    public int getAge() {
        return age;
    }

    public void setAge(int age) {
        this.age = age;
    }

    public int getSalary() {
        return salary;
    }

    public void setSalary(int salary) {
        this.salary = salary;
    }
}

Under resources, create employees.csv:

John,Doe,35,90000
Sue,Smith,45,95000
Joe,Brown,33,86000
Carol,Dunn,25,75000
Mike,Ward,23,70000
Lisa,Jones,22,69000

Under the src/main/java/com/organization/app package, create a main class:

Main.java:

public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) {

        ApplicationContext context = new AnnotationConfigApplicationContext(SpringBatchHelloWorldConfig.class);

        JobLauncher jobLauncher = context.getBean(JobLauncher.class);
        Job job = context.getBean("listEmployeesJob", Job.class);

        JobParameters jobParameters = new JobParametersBuilder().toJobParameters();
    
        try {
            JobExecution jobExecution = jobLauncher.run(job, jobParameters);
        }
        catch (JobExecutionAlreadyRunningException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
        catch (JobRestartException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
        catch (JobInstanceAlreadyCompleteException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
        catch (JobParametersInvalidException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
    
    }
}
