Java Question

Spring-Batch without persisting metadata to database?

I want to create a

spring-batch
job, but I want to run it without any database persistence. Unfortunately spring-batch requires to write
metadata
ob the job cycles to a database somehow, thus procing me to provide at least some kind of db with transactionmanager and entitymanager.

It it possible to prevent the metadata and run independently from txmanagers and databases?

Update:

Answer

I want to run it without any database persistence

You can use MapJobRepositoryFactoryBean and ResourcelessTransactionManager

sample configuration:

<bean id="transactionManager"
    class="org.springframework.batch.support.transaction.ResourcelessTransactionManager" />

<bean id="jobRepository"
    class="org.springframework.batch.core.repository.support.MapJobRepositoryFactoryBean">
    <property name="transactionManager" ref="transactionManager" />
</bean>

<bean id="jobLauncher"
    class="org.springframework.batch.core.launch.support.SimpleJobLauncher">
    <property name="jobRepository" ref="jobRepository" />
</bean>

For Spring 4.X, the annotation based configuration would be as follows:

@Bean
public PlatformTransactionManager getTM() {
    return new ResourcelessTransactionManager();
}

@Bean
public JobRepository getJobRepo() {
    return new MapJobRepositoryFactoryBean(getTransactionManager()).getObject();
}
