I'm using spring batch with spring cloud task in spring boot and my spring batch jobs are being automagically executed when my task project runs
I even can pass CLI params that end up as Spring batch job params, which is great
however now I want to pass a job parameter that is calculated when the app boots. Where/how can I set this job param programatically?
In "normal" spring batch you would use jobLauncher.run(job, params), but in this new cloud-task & boot world, I never actually call the job launcher

Spring Boot executes the jobs on startup
You can switch that off and do it your own way
It's in the user guide
There's a flag I think, or a list of jobs to execute (which can be empty)
Spring Cloud Task just keeps track of what happened

Thank you @dsyer . Could you point me to the spring batch class that actually executes jobs automatically on startup? I tried finding it by following down classes from the @EnableBatchProcessing annotation but can't find where it actually executes jobs

Are JavaDocs published for any of the Spring Cloud projects? I'm specifically looking for Eureka JavaDocs but the links I've found don't seem to go where I would expect:

Even more specifically, the Camden reference documentation for Using Eureka on AWS references a no-arg constructor that is no longer available.

We can fix the reference guide
PR always welcome of course
Javadocs have very little value to me, personally. But if there's a lot of pressure we can find a way to publish them.
I don't think we ever got round to doing it
Your IDE will render javadocs for you. That's what I prefer anyway.
So please look at the source code for the javadocs
