Spring Cloud Task Application Starters are Spring Boot applications that may be any process including Spring Batch jobs that do not run forever, and they end/stop at some point. Spring Cloud Task Applications can be used with Spring Cloud Data Flow to create, deploy, and orchestrate short-lived data microservices.
Spring Cloud Task Application Starters are standalone executable applications that can be used for on-demand use-cases such as database migration, machine learning, and scheduled operations. These applications can run independently on variety of runtime platforms including: Cloud Foundry, Apache Yarn, Apache Mesos, Kubernetes, Docker, or even on your laptop.
