The JSR 352 as starting point

JSR-352 is the specification used in the java-world for batch-oriented software. It supplies a common vocabulary, key concepts and abstractions, that java batch frameworks should follow, and was designed by the main specialists of batch processing. While the implementation is in java, the concepts are universal.

Hence, Summer Batch uses the main architecture carried by this specification, and most of its features are provided. In addition, while Summer Batch supplies most functionalities that any Batch framework also supplies (such as reading a database), it also contains a set of more specialized features, particularly some useful tools to adapt legacy Cobol batches to the Microsoft® .NET world.
