Accenture builds on Spring Framework

Called Spring Batch, the open-source project is designed for writing batch jobs using the Java-based Spring Framework.

Consulting firm Accenture on Tuesday announced that it has contributed code to an open-source project for Spring-based batch processing.

Called Spring Batch, the software is designed to let Java programmers more quickly write batch applications, according to Accenture, which announced the project at JavaOne.

The project is hosted at the Spring Framework Web site and the initial code is set for release in the coming weeks.

Interface21, which provides support and develops the Spring framework, is also working on a project.

"Bringing together the deep technical experience of Interface21 and Spring's proven programming model with the extensive systems integration delivery experiences of Accenture marks a powerful partnership to fill an important gap in enterprise Java," said Rod Johnson, founder of the Spring Framework and CEO of Interface21, in a statement.
