Hello ranchers
I am novice to spring batch. I have created and successfully executed job from spring by using multiple threads and it works perfetly fine except that when program execution is complete, program flow does not comes to end/halt. i.e. even when the last statement of main method gets executed program does not exit. I am not sure whether it keeps on waiting for threads to complete or what. Can someone please advice on this ? "Below is my config file for job



And below is the launcher code



As stated above, the code runs in 5 different thread for the task "hello" and once for task "world" though it does not bring the execution of main program to halt even after the last line of main method "End of execution" gets executed. Any link white paper will greatly be appriciated.
Thanks in advance
Samir

You have used a thread pool executor, but nowhere have you setup the job so that it should run the "Hello" step five times.

Questions:
1) Are you sure the hello step is running 5 times? Do you see the hello-output getting printed 5 times?

Suggestions:
1) Run the code in eclipse in debug mode, you will be able to see which thread is stuck.

I don't see any reason why the program would not end.
