    When I am trying to execute two taskletstep under a tasklet job, I am getting the below exception. Even I didn't create any table BATCH_STEP_EXECUTION. It was worked well for a single tasklet step earlier, now that also not. Any one help plz....................

    What version of Spring Batch are you using?


    • #3
      Spring batch 1.0.1..

      Lots of existing programs running in my project runs fine with the current spring batch version and even I didn't encounter this issue earlier. And also the step execution id and job execution id in the BATCH_STEP_EXECUTION are nearly 3000, This looks fine also. So, I am thinking error might be problem of id generation.

      Any specific reason behind this?

      And any change in the version, batch meta tables changed. So I have to create a separate set of tables for the new programs. For this my tech team won't agree on this.

      Do you have any other solution other than changing the version?

        It's probably an overflow in one of the VARCHAR columns (most likely EXIT_MESSAGE). You could try increasing the column sizes. Double it if you can.

          My SQL exception is

          ORA-01461: can bind a LONG value only for insert into a LONG column

          So, mostly related to Number data type..

          Is it anyway to intercept the insertion of BATCH_STEP_EXECUTION, and see the exactly what parameters going on....

            You can try printing it out from an AfterStep method.

              I could be wrong but I think "LONG" means "long char data (VARCHAR2)". Anyway you can probably see what's in the step execution by looking at DEBUG level logging for org.springframework.batch.core or org.springframework.batch.core.step.
