Batch Programs in App Server?
Is it advisable to host batch programs of spring batch implementation in a Application server like Glassfish or WebSphere?
We are implementing a batch process for a client and was just could not think of any spefic requirement why we should host these programs in a container. The connection pooling provided by App Server can be useful? Any suggestions/comments?

Many people host Batch applications in an app server (or simple web server) in order to get remote management capabilities (e.g. launch a Job as a web service). Just like with any Spring application, there is no particular benefit in using a full JEE container.
