Not sure if you are comparing apples to apples here.

Spring Batch is a proper batch framework (and the only open source batch framework?) - (Batch Job terms like JOB, STEP, Restart, Scalable are probably around)

The others (I haven't used any) - seem more like ELT tools (Sql loader category)

Batch has been traditionally ignored in Java - leading to loads of home grown frameworks. There is a JSR-352 which address batch concerns and most likely be there in a future release of Java. Until we get that I don't think there is any other full blown batch framework except Spring Batch.
