Batch Framework in J2EE

Hi All,
I am in the process of searching for a batch framework to be used in our J2EE product.
So it means it would have to run in a J2EE container.

I considered Quartz - But it seems to be using direct (un-managed) thread from java. This would be a problem in container.

Another option is Spring batch - It seems to be a decent choice.

Any other options?

Thanks in Advance,

What sort of J2EE container does it need to run in? EJB? Servlet? We find Quartz works for us.

We use Cron for our batch processes.
The EJB's need to live in a container. The caller (client) can pretty much be any process.
