Description mminella 2013-02-23 02:56:53 UTC
The spec requires that the artifacts (ItemReaders, etc) are created as the steps that use them are executed.  There are no tests (from what I can tell) that verify this behavior.
Comment 1 cvignola 2013-08-28 21:49:02 UTC
Can't remember all the context here.

The spec now says in Sec 11.1: 

"All batch artifacts are instantiated prior to their use in the scope in which they are declared in the Job XML and are valid for the life of their containing scope."

So the comment doesn't seem to apply.
