In this tutorial for Spring Batch, we’re going to take a look at Programmatic Flow decisions in a Spring Batch job using Spring’s JobExecutionDecider. Spring Batch is a pretty powerful framework and this is another useful tool to have in your Spring Batch toolbox.

To demonstrate, I’ll use a scenario that came up recently while working on my client’s project. After explaining the situation and my goals, I’ll jump into a detailed, step-by-step guide. Let’s get started!

In one of my previous Spring Batch blog articles, I wrote about the need to read a set of data, process the data, and export the transformed data into XML for consumption by another system. In this blog, I’ll be doing the opposite. I’ll show you how to read data from an XML format instead.

Spring Batch: Using JAXB And StaxEventItemWriter To Generate XML

While working with a client recently, my team was given the task to retrieve the held securities and account data from the system and export it to XML with the goal of importing it into another external system. The solution involved building a Spring Batch job that would read a set held security data, export that to XML data, and deliver the file to the external vendor securely.

In this blog, I’ll be giving a tutorial on how to execute this solution. These requirements form the basis for the example we’ll use.
