Caused by: org.springframework.beans.NotWritablePropertyException: Invalid property 'backOffPolicy' of bean class [org.springframework.batch.core.configuration.xml.StepParserStepFactoryBean]: Bean property 'backOffPolicy' is not writable or has an invalid setter method. Does the parameter type of the setter match the return type of the getter?
