Spring Batch, JdbcExecutionContextDao java.util.Map$Entry deserializer issue, xstream 1.4.1

I have a problem using Spring Batch 2.1.9:
when i use jobExplorer.getJobExecution(jobExecutionId), i find a problem when DAO has to deserialize a string like:

{"map":[{"entry":{"string":"parsedComparingDate","date":"2014-03-08 23:00:00.0 UTC"}}]}


from the BATCH_JOB_EXECUTION_CONTEXT table, using method
JdbcJobExecutionDao.getJobExecution()
.

I know that spring batch uses xstream 1.3, but in my Pom, i have:


  • spring-batch 2.1.9;

  • xstream 1.4.1 (inherited from smooks);

  • jettison 1.3.3 (inherited from cxf);



Also, i read that xstream 1.3 does not work fine with jettison 1.3.3, but using xstream 1.3 (excluding xstream 1.4.1 from pom) the job works correctly, while, using xstream 1.4.1 or major, i find the following exception:

1) i have seen the code, can i configure the XStreamExecutionContextStringSerializer in order to set reflectionProvider = null (in this way, it will not uses the Provider) ?

2) there are other solutions to fix my problem ?

thanks

Answer

It's impossible for me to change xstream version and jettison version because they imported by other components (like smooks).

A possible solution could be to create two different JBoss modules and to use them togheter.

So, i find another solution: use spring-batch 2.2.0.RELEASE, and use org.springframework.batch.core.repository.dao.DefaultExecutionContextSerializer as serializer instead of XStream.

Below the configuration:

<bean id="batchDefaultSerializer" class="org.springframework.batch.core.repository.dao.DefaultExecutionContextSerializer" />

<bean id="jobRepository" class="org.springframework.batch.core.repository.support.JobRepositoryFactoryBean">
    <property name="dataSource" ref="dataSource" />
    <property name="transactionManager" ref="batchTransactionManager" />
    <property name="lobHandler" ref="defaultLobHandler" />
    <property name="serializer" ref="batchDefaultSerializer" />
</bean>       

<bean id="jobExplorer"      
      class="org.springframework.batch.core.explore.support.JobExplorerFactoryBean">
    <property name="dataSource" ref="dataSource" />
    <property name="serializer" ref="batchDefaultSerializer" />
</bean>

I tested it and it works fine, so, i think it's the best solution.
