Fully configurable Batch jobs?
I'm just trying to figure out if I can use Spring Batch for the following scenario:
I have to write a simple prog that does some schedulable data transformation jobs, i.e. read data from one database and write them into another.
The program must be configurable in the way that all datasources (input and output) and all tables and fields must be configurable in a .properties (or .xml) file.
The point is, I don't have any information about the data i have to transfer at coding time. The tool must be general enough to accept jobs only configured in config files.
1. Is spring batch usable for that task?
2. How do I do this?
