Hi mykong,

I am parsing(reading) an xml file(without root tag) that has multiple records through spring batch, but it is throwing an error. Please help me with the same. It works fine with the root tag but i want to parse it without root tag.

Error:

Error reading XML stream; nested exception is javax.xml.stream.XMLStreamException: ParseError at [row,col]:[2,2]

Message: The markup in the document following the root element must be well-formed.

I need to implement a file locking mechanism such that while a particular process is reading the file, no other process is able to read it. Using FileLock from Nio Api is not working when I am deploying the application in a local server, can you provide a proper solution for this?

I thought these collections were a great introduction to Spring Batch. I am still strugging to over-come the ORA error I encounter using Oracle for my job repository and I am trying to use the Spring Batch Admin from the instructions I found here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19840826/how-to-get-a-stable-release-of-spring-batch-admin And I have been successful at creating the appropriate batch-oracle.properties which I placed under the spring-batch-admin-sample (sub-directory within the set of things I downloaded per that link) under src/main/resources.

Trying to deploy this sample on GlassFish 4 and got the following exception:

The lifecycle method [initialize] must not throw a checked exception. Related annotation information: annotation [@javax.annotation.PostConstruct()] on annotated element [public void org.springframework.batch.core.configuration.annotation.DefaultBatchConfigurer.initialize() throws java.lang.Exception] of type [METHOD]

Any idea ?
