Summer Batch Introduction

Summer Batch is an efficient, open-source, lightweight batch framework for .NET community taking full advantages of the C# platform and aimed at fulfilling typical enterprise bulk processing needs. Well known Java Batch Standard JSR-352 is used as guideline for building framework and features of JSR-352 are supported by Summer Batch.

Our primary goals are to help users to:

  • build new lightweight and efficient batch solution for Microsoft®-based environments.
  • provide modern architecture patterns that facilitates migrating batch to modern Microsoft®-based environments;

This is the result of a several months collaboration between Accenture and BluAge® Corporation. Accenture has a long experience in dealing with enterprise batch frameworks, on a large set of platforms. BluAge® Corporation is a leading actor in providing legacy modernization solutions. By sharing our experiences, we managed to focus on very essentials parts of JSR-352 specification, covering needs for majority of users, in particular in scope of legacy batch modernization.

As a result of this partnership, BluAge® has developed two software solutions:

  • a product to modernize COBOL batches to a Summer Batch solution;
  • a product to craft automatically a Summer Batch solution from an UML2 model.
