Add a Quartz menu in Spring Batch Admin

This article show how to add a menu item inside Spring batch Admin.  Download the Source code

Note: Quartz is not yet implemented in this tutorial. This subject will be cover in the next article.

There are several steps when you add a menu item:

  • Create a Quartz menu.
  • Create a Quartz controler.
  • Create a Quartz service.
  • Create a Quartz template.
  • Modify the Spring configuration.

A Quartz Menu

This class is integrated in the architecture of spring batch Admin.

The menu for Quartz is /quartz

package com.alaincieslik.springbatch.article.quartz.web;

import org.springframework.batch.admin.web.resources.BaseMenu;

public class QuartzMenu extends BaseMenu {

	public QuartzMenu() {
		super("/quartz", "Quartz", 5);

A Quartz Controller

There is no logic inside the controler. The objective of this article is just to configurate the menu into Spring batch admin.

package com.alaincieslik.springbatch.article.quartz.web;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;

import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Controller;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMethod;

import com.alaincieslik.springbatch.article.quartz.service.QuartzService;

public class QuartzController {

	private QuartzService quartzService;

	@RequestMapping(value = "/quartz", method = RequestMethod.GET)
	public List getTriggers() {
		return new ArrayList();

A Quartz Service

The service is the entry point for all the quartz requests.

package com.alaincieslik.springbatch.article.quartz.service;

import java.util.List;

public interface QuartzService {

	public List getTriggers();


A Quartz Service Implementation

package com.alaincieslik.springbatch.article.quartz.service;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;

public class QuartzServiceImpl implements QuartzService {

	public List getTriggers(){
		return new ArrayList();


A Quartz template

This template do not contains any logic. It just say hello way you click on the menu item.

<#import "/spring.ftl" as spring />

<div id="quartz">


A Spring configuration

In Spring Admin Console, you can override the configuration in META-INF/spring/batch/servlet/override/web-context.xml
