In the course Spring Batch participants learn to use the open source Framework Spring Batch for batch applications that require the processing of large amounts of data without human intervention. Spring Batch has reusable functions that are essential when processing large numbers of records and supports logging, transaction management, job processing statistics as well as restarting or skipping jobs.
The course starts with an overview of the architecture of the Spring Batch Framework and the essentials of Spring and Spring Boot. The parts of Spring Batch are explained here, such as Jobs, Steps, ItemReaders, ItemProcessors and ItemWriters.
Next the configuration of Jobs and the role of Job Parameters are discussed. Job Listeners, the Execution Context and persistence are also addressed.
Spring Batch typically uses a Chunk-oriented processing style where steps in a transaction are first read in, then processed and finally written. In the course this step processing is extensively treated including chunk size configuration and step listeners.
The role of Job Repositories with an in memory representation or by using databases and JobExplorers and JobLaunchers are also on the course schedule.
Finally after going into the details of ItemReaders, ItemProcessors and ItemWriters, attention is paid to tuning and making the batch processing scalable by using parallelization, multiple threads and asynchronous calls.
The course Spring Batch is intended for experienced Java Developers who want to use Spring Batch to process large amounts of data.
Experience with Java programming and object orientation is required to participate in this course. Prior knowledge of the Spring Framework is beneficial to good understanding.
The concepts are discussed on the basis of presentations and demos. The theory is interchanged with exercises. Course times are from 9:30 am to 16:30 pm.
After successful completion of the course the participants receive an official certificate Spring Batch.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
