hello,
i'm new to the mainframes field, but from what i've learned so far i'd just like to add a little to what kiran said, batch jobs are run mainly in the background of an application, no user nteraction is required its all a predefined process flow without any interruption from the user. while online jobs are run in the foreground, that is user input is required for the process in the job, at as many steps requried depending upon the application. for example when a user makes an ATM transaction he/she's actually running the foreground processes, the calculation of balance amounts deductions, discounts, refunding, interest calculation saving the transaction record in the main storage area etc etc etc are the background jobs or the batch processes.

regards
abhinav
