@FunctionalInterface public interface JobLauncher
Simple interface for controlling jobs, including possible ad-hoc executions, based on different runtime identifiers. It is extremely important to note that this interface makes absolutely no guarantees about whether or not calls to it are executed synchronously or asynchronously. The javadocs for specific implementations should be checked to ensure callers fully understand how the job will be run.

JobExecutionif it returns synchronously. If the implementation is asynchronous, the status might well be unknown.
JobExecutionAlreadyRunningException- if the JobInstance identified by the properties already has an execution running.
IllegalArgumentException- if the job or jobInstanceProperties are null.
JobRestartException- if the job has been run before and circumstances that preclude a re-start.
JobInstanceAlreadyCompleteException- if the job has been run before with the same parameters and completed successfully
JobParametersInvalidException- if the parameters are not valid for this job
