We are pleased to announce that Spring Batch 1.0 M2 has been released! This milestone release introduces:
- A set of Core APIs that can be used for configuring and building batch applications.
- An execution environment and utilities for managing and monitoring multi-step jobs in a single virtual machine.
- Packaging the framework into three pieces: infrastructure, core and execution.
We expect at this point that there will be at least one more milestone release before a release candidate. We are getting some great feedback from projects already using Spring Batch, and all this information will be used to refine the plan for the 1.0 and future releases. You can track the plans for these stages on JIRA http://opensource.atlassian.com/projects/spring/browse/BATCH.
