As Java EE 7 rolls forward, my good friend and colleague Arun Gupta has been trying to blog about some of the most exciting new features. His blog entry Undertanding JSR 352 Concepts is a great starting point into JBatch (aka "JSR 352" aka "Batch Applications for the Java Platform"). As you may be aware JBatch is an IBM led JSR that's slated to be included into the Java EE 7 platform, but not the lighter weight Web Profile.

Arun explains some key JBatch concepts like Job, Step, JobOperator, JobRepository and the Reader-Processor-Writer pattern, provides some pretty good code examples and points to further resources like the JavaOne JBatch session and the official spec artifacts.
