Spring Boot – Batch tutorial using MySQL, JPA and annotations
In this example I show how to use Spring Boot to create a simple Spring Batch application. I used the same architecture in a production software. Spring Boot is great to improve productivity but the documentation is still sparse (the framework is still in 0.5 version).
You can find more details here: http://javaee.ch/2013/10/27/spring-boot-batch-tutorial-using-mysql-jpa-and-annotations/ The only requirement is to have a mysql database installed. You can find more information in the source code.
If you start a new project in an IDE, you can simply create a simple new maven project (without Spring wizards or similar).
