As of version 4.1, calculating the job duration is possible with one of the following options:

Option 1: Using a listener

Something like:

class ExecutionTimeJobListener implements JobExecutionListener {

	private Logger logger = LoggerFactory.getLogger(ExecutionTimeJobListener.class);
	private StopWatch stopWatch = new StopWatch();

	public void beforeJob(JobExecution jobExecution) {

	public void afterJob(JobExecution jobExecution) {
		stopWatch.stop();"Job took " + stopWatch.getTotalTimeSeconds() + "s");

This option requires the user to write this kind of listener and register it in the job definition.

Option 2: Using the logs

This option requires to find the first and last lines of the log and calculate the difference of timestamps. For small and quick jobs, that can be easy. However, for jobs that run for hours and produce a big chunk of logs, finding the first/last lines manually and do the math can be tedious.

Both options require manual actions from the user and letting the framework do this task has an added value. The job duration to be printed in the logs is intended for humans, so it should be in a human readable format, something like: 3h 15m 45s.
