Hi I have a scenario which must be very common. I have a staging directory which I will automatically monitor for files. When files are found (1 or more), I want to iterate through the found files, do some processing, and then move the processed file. I am using a tFileList for the iteration. My problem is that it seems impossible to do any operation that affects the current file (tFileDelete or tFileCopy with "Remove source File" checked). I get no errors, but the file is simply not deleted.
What is the best practice to remove processed files from the staging directory?
My env is TIS 2.4.1.r16077, I'm working in a Java project Any advice appreciated
Hi shong, if after deletion i needed to do something without exiting from current iteration of tFileList, should it be possible to connect tFileDelete to a tRunJob? I have tried whith a "main" connection, but it says "if this component has output, ther emust be an input link to propagate the data". Which is silly , because i do not have any output. What should i do?
Hi, i thought about doing a branch. So you data flow (main) will go wherever it will be needed and onComponentOk will go to tFileDelete. Will tFileDelete wait for tRunJob? Good question. I think onComponentOk is triggered after all actions of the components are done. And the last one is done at the end of the iteration. So it will wait for tRunJob. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Bye Volker
Hello, I'm also running into the same issue with tFileDelete NOT deleting while no error returned. Here's my flow, not sure if the order of the flow might be causing it not to Delete?
tFileList (iterate) --> tFileInputDelimited --> tMSSQLOutput --> tFileCopy --> tFileDelete (not deleting) I can delete with a separate branch, but not sure why my flow above wouldn't delete? Any idea?
tFileList (iterate) --> tFileInputDelimited --> tMSSQLOutput --> tFileCopy tFileList2 (iterate) --> tFileDelete2 (deleting) However, if I use two separate branch, what do I need to do to call the second tFileList when the the first tFileList iteration actions are complete? Your help is much appreciated!
