Batch Scheduling and Batch Job Frameworks for Java Web Application

Respected Experts,

I am implementing a module for my web application that would be responsible for scheduling and running batch jobs. I am looking for frameworks (Quartz, Spring Batch) etc that can help me to avoid developing everything from scratch. The main features that I am looking for are:

  • UI that can be used to schedule the jobs and check the status of jobs in progress
  • Monitoring of the Jobs in progress e.g. time taken, reason for failure etc
  • Easy Extensibility to create new jobs. Our application will have few 'out of box' jobs that is these would be bundled
  • Ability to run batch and shell scripts
  • Minimal Performance Overhead
  • Interface with web application or can run within a Servlet container


  • There are quite a good number of frameworks available but I am looking for some sort of expert opinion on these. Also, would I need to use two different frameworks (quartz + spring batch) for these two requirements - Scheduling and Running. OR there is a single framework available that meets both the requirements.

    Thanks and Regards

    I only know Quartz because I needed one time to launch jobs as cron tasks (with similar syntax) in
    a J2EE context. It was very easy to integrate the library into a full fledged J2EE application
    (JSF, Hibernate,..). Sadly I didn't get the full potential of it in any way but for our purposes it was
    enough, adaptable to launch jobs asynchronously from within a JSP or any technology at the view layer.

    I think you must read requirements, usefulness, learning curve,etc of both projects to decide properly:

    http://quartz-scheduler.org/

    http://projects.spring.io/spring-batch/

    Good luck!
     
    It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
