I have got another thread running but I think thats got too much data Forum link
I was trying to run the example in the Spring batch documentation but I can't seem to autowire the right classes. Couldn't correlate it to any sample in the spring samples also. Could someone guide me.
If your just tetsing (Say Junit) the @SpringRunner all with JobLauncherTestUtils takes care of all the plumbing code.

In all the Batch Jobs I have written I never reference JobRepository - There enough help to do all the plumbing!
As for a 3-4 page guide to Spring Batch - I agree its a good idea. So why don't you start one? You already seem to have a 'nice' start up guide post here where you kind of gone through the steps!
I do suggest giving the whole Spring Batch documentation a read, it does cover everything.
