Been trying to get this to work for a few days, and after banging my head on it for a while, was wondering if anyone else more experienced with Spring could give a hand?
In a nutshell, what Im trying to do is to take a value that's obtained in a tasklet, and make it available in an abstract class. This abstract class is extended by child classes that would need this value to perform some operations in the steps that we perform. It should then reset once the current job is done and if not complete, move on to the next.
In the tasklet's execute method, I have the following line that assigned data to the StepContext.
then in the abstract class, I have the following
Now I've followed a few texts in trying to get this to work, such as this example at spring.io, although I'm not certain that I implemented it successfully (my project only uses java annotation). I've also verified that the value is being populated into the JobContext, it's just a matter of getting it out that seems to be the issue, as all attempts result in null.
For completeness, this is what I have in the InterstepDataRetriever interface mentioned above
For job listeners, the application is using a class that's extending JobExecutionListener (it does nothing right now other then extend JobListener, since using JobListener directly gave an error). For step, it's using a method that has the following code.
I've verified that this code is being seen and executed.
I've hopefully outlined successfully what is going on, what I've trying to do, and what I'm failing at. If not, please ask for clairafication. This is the second time I've performed this operation and I'm sure I've missed somthing important.
