Interface Step

All Known Implementing Classes:
AbstractStep, DelegateStep, FlowStep, JobStep, PartitionStep, TaskletStep

public interface Step
Batch domain interface representing the configuration of a step. As with a Job, a Step is meant to explicitly represent the configuration of a step by a developer but also the ability to execute the step.

  • Method Details

    • getName

      String getName()
      the name of this step.
    • isAllowStartIfComplete

      default boolean isAllowStartIfComplete()
      true if a step that is already marked as complete can be started again. Defaults to false.
    • getStartLimit

      default int getStartLimit()
      the number of times a step can be (re)started for the same job instance. Defaults to Integer.MAX_VALUE
    • execute

      void execute(StepExecution stepExecution) throws JobInterruptedException
      Process the step and assign progress and status meta information to the StepExecution provided. The Step is responsible for setting the meta information and also saving it, if required by the implementation.
      It is not safe to reuse an instance of Step to process multiple concurrent executions.
      stepExecution - an entity representing the step to be executed.
      JobInterruptedException - if the step is interrupted externally.
