I'm not sure if <job parent=""/> works in that case. It would be nice if it did, so try it, and comment on https://jira.springsource.org/browse/BATCH-1610 to say what happened (that issue relates to Steps but the same should be true of Jobs).
What is your use case? Is it really necessary to extend AbstractJob?
