Interface PartitionHandler

All Known Implementing Classes:
AbstractPartitionHandler, MessageChannelPartitionHandler, TaskExecutorPartitionHandler
Functional Interface:
This is a functional interface and can therefore be used as the assignment target for a lambda expression or method reference.

@FunctionalInterface public interface PartitionHandler
Interface defining the responsibilities of controlling the execution of a partitioned StepExecution. Implementations will need to create a partition with the StepExecutionSplitter, and then use an execution fabric (grid, etc.), to execute the partitioned step. The results of the executions can be returned raw from remote workers to be aggregated by the caller.

  • Method Details

    • handle

      Collection<StepExecution> handle(StepExecutionSplitter stepSplitter, StepExecution stepExecution) throws Exception
      Main entry point for PartitionHandler interface. The splitter creates all the executions that need to be farmed out, along with their input parameters (in the form of their ExecutionContext). The manager step execution is used to identify the partition and group together the results logically.
      stepSplitter - a strategy for generating a collection of StepExecution instances
      stepExecution - the manager step execution for the whole partition
      a collection of completed StepExecution instances
      Exception - if anything goes wrong. This allows implementations to be liberal and rely on the caller to translate an exception into a step failure as necessary.
