Microservices are being developed all around us nowadays. Many of these services are short-lived. Scheduled tasks, data synchronization, data aggregation, report generation and similar services are short-lived. They are typically expected to start, run to completion and end.

Many external applications and schedulers have been built to meet this purpose, however, sometimes you need a custom task that requires deep integration with your organization’s application.

The Spring Boot platform makes this functionality available to developers via the Spring Cloud Task API.
