The simple, stupid batch framework for Java™

What is Easy Batch?
Easy Batch is a framework that aims to simplify batch processing with Java. Writing batch applications requires a lot of boilerplate code: reading, writing, filtering, parsing and validating data, logging, reporting to name a few.. The idea is to free you from these tedious tasks and let you focus on your application's logic.
How does it work?
Easy Batch jobs are simple processing pipelines. Records are read in sequence from a data source, processed in pipeline and written in batches to a data sink:
The framework provides
Batch APIs to abstract data format and process records in a consistent way regardless of the data source type.
Let's see a quick example. Suppose you have the following
id,user,message 1,foo,hello 2,bar,@foo hi!
and you would like to transform these tweets to XML format. Here is how you can do that with Easy Batch:
Job job = new JobBuilder() .reader(new FlatFileRecordReader("tweets.csv")) .filter(new HeaderRecordFilter()) .mapper(new DelimitedRecordMapper(Tweet.class, "id", "user", "message")) .marshaller(new XmlRecordMarshaller(Tweet.class)) .writer(new FileRecordWriter("tweets.xml")) .batchSize(10) .build(); JobExecutor jobExecutor = new JobExecutor(); JobReport report = jobExecutor.execute(job); jobExecutor.shutdown();
This example creates a job that:
- reads records one by one from the input file
- filter the header record
- map each record to an instance of the
- marshal the tweet to XML format
- and finally write XML records in batches of 10 to the output file
At the end of execution, you get a report with statistics and metrics about the job run (Execution time, number of errors, etc).
All the boilerplate code of resources I/O, iterating through the data source, filtering and parsing records, mapping data to the domain object
Tweet, writing output and reporting
is handled by Easy Batch. Your code becomes declarative, intuitive, easy to read, understand, test and maintain.
