I am on the look out for the most suitable option to do bulk data operations.
I have a requirement where in bulk data will have to be copied and inserted into the same table by modifying one column. The challenge here is that the queries will be dynamic and will be built based upon some metadata. Also, it should be able to run on any database.
I was checking for a suitable java framework for this. Is spring batch framework a good choice for this?
Spring batch will help as a batch framework. Your issue is more on database processing.
Is there anything special with your db queries that need special consideration?

Thanks Kathleen for the quick response.
The specific thing about queries is that the DB structure is highly configurable and table name, columns, joins etc will be built only during runtime.
Will this be supported by the spring batch framework?
