What is Easy Batch?

Easy Batch is a framework that aims at simplifying batch processing with Java. It was specifically designed for simple, single-task ETL jobs. Writing batch applications requires a lot of boilerplate code: reading, writing, filtering, parsing and validating data, logging, reporting to name a few.. The idea is to free you from these tedious tasks and let you focus on your batch application's logic.

How does it work?

Easy Batch jobs are simple processing pipelines. Records are read in sequence from a data source, processed in pipeline and written in batches to a data sink:

batch processing

The framework provides the Record and Batch APIs to abstract data format and process records in a consistent way regardless of the data source/sink type.

Let's see a quick example. Suppose you have the following tweets.csv file:

id,user,message
1,foo,hello
2,bar,@foo hi!

and you want to transform these tweets to XML format. Here is how you can do that with Easy Batch:

Path inputFile = Paths.get("tweets.csv");
Path outputFile = Paths.get("tweets.xml");
Job job = new JobBuilder<String, String>()
         .reader(new FlatFileRecordReader(inputFile))
         .filter(new HeaderRecordFilter<>())
         .mapper(new DelimitedRecordMapper<>(Tweet.class, "id", "user", "message"))
         .marshaller(new XmlRecordMarshaller<>(Tweet.class))
         .writer(new FileRecordWriter(outputFile))
         .batchSize(10)
         .build();

JobExecutor jobExecutor = new JobExecutor();
JobReport report = jobExecutor.execute(job);
jobExecutor.shutdown();

This example creates a job that:

  • reads records one by one from the input file tweets.csv
  • filters the header record
  • maps each record to an instance of the Tweet bean
  • marshals the tweet to XML format
  • and finally writes XML records in batches of 10 to the output file tweets.xml

At the end of execution, you get a report with statistics and metrics about the job run (Execution time, number of errors, etc). All the boilerplate code of resources I/O, iterating through the data source, filtering and parsing records, mapping data to the domain object Tweet, writing output and reporting is handled by Easy Batch. Your code becomes declarative, intuitive, easy to read, understand, test and maintain.

## Quick start

Add the following dependency to your project and you are ready to go:

 <dependency>
     <groupId>org.jeasy</groupId>
     <artifactId>easy-batch-core</artifactId>
     <version>7.0.2</version>
 </dependency>

You can also generate a quick start project with the following command:

$>mvn archetype:generate \
      -DarchetypeGroupId=org.jeasy \
      -DarchetypeArtifactId=easy-batch-archetype \
      -DarchetypeVersion=7.0.2
