    JBeret UI

    Cheng Fang Master

      Many batch applications need a front-end UI to access the batch job repository, display and analyze job data.  The purpose of jberet-ui (jsr352/jberet-ui at master · jberet/jsr352 · GitHub) is to provide a set of reusable web components (html, js, css, img, etc) to be included in batch applications.  jberet-ui invokes jberet-rest-api https://github.com/jberet/jsr352/tree/master/jberet-rest-api to interact with the target batch runtime.  Two primary modes of running jberet-ui:

      • packaged into Java EE web application WAR archive file, and access the REST resources in the same application
      • hosted on a http server (e.g., node.js) as a stand-alone single-page application (SPA), and access the REST resources deployed in other application server (e.g., WildFly)


      jberet-ui has the similar purpose as spring batch admin.  JBatch also its own GUI/Web module


      How is it different from WildFly admin console batch panel?

      • jberet-ui is application-level UI components, while WildFly admin console offers application server admin that includes batch subsystems.
      • jberet-ui can be deployed or hosted as part of a web app, or on its own in any http server.
      • jberet-ui can be customized by users to fit their own application needs.
      • jberet-ui can display more batch job data, while WildFly admin console batch subsystem is constrained by its purpose.
      • jberet-ui does not touch any server-side batch subsystem configuration, while WildFly admin console supports viewing and customizing batch subsystem configuration



      • support roughly all operations in the standard JobOperator interface, e.g.,
        • given job xml name, and optionally job parameters, start a job
        • list recent job names
        • list all job instances
        • list all job executions
        • list details of an individual job execution
        • restart, stop, abandon and refresh a job execution
        • list details of an individual step execution
      • support scheduling job execution:
        • scheduleing starting a job
          • single-action job schedule
            • by exact date & time
            • by initial delay minutes
          • repeatable job schedule
            • by initial delay and interval/period
            • by initial delay and subsequent delay
            • by ScheduleExpression (only available in EJB-Timer-based job scheduler)
          • non-persistent & persistent job schedule
        • scheduling restarting a previously failed job execution
          • by delay minutes
          • by exact date & time
        • list job schedules
          • refresh job schedule list
        • cancel job schedules
      • provide success alert upon successful outcome of any action, with links to new view if applicable
      • provide failure alert upon failed outcome of any action
      • provide any form validation (mainly job xml name field)
      • support sorting and filtering on most columns of most display grid
      • support exporting certain data to CSV or PDF format
