Re: Watch file for specific time interval

Schedule the task with the desired interval (using TAC or an external scheduler) or use tSleep to introduce the wait strategy into the job.

In this case you should anticipate a condition to break the infinite loop.

Re: Watch file for specific time interval

all what suggested by @TRF, also:

 

- look for ESB, where You can create route which monitor folders

- Use remote agents with could ship files (or file content)

 

last also allow tail file in "real-time" to message queue

Re: Watch file for specific time interval

Hi,

 

This is what I need to implement

System should perform below validations for file reception
 - File should be received by stipulated (configured time) time for particular Issuer
 - For each issuer two files should be present – Main and Meta

 If file not received by stipulated time, then system should retry up to configured number of times
 - System should retry after configured duration

 

Can you please elaborate how to implement this. The directory that needs to be scanned will have multiple files coming , I need to scan this folder, read these files and do validations and processing.

 

Appreciate your co-operation and timely help.

 

Thanks,

Re: Watch file for specific time interval

- Schedule Job as usual - by any scheduler

 

Job structure:

- tLoop with number of iteration what You want to re-try

- iterate to next steps:

- tFileExists for both of files 

- trigger IF exists both - run all steps and exit Loop

- trigger IF not exists both - tSleep for predicted number of seconds

- after tSleep if number of current iteration == maximum defined - notify about unsuccessful execution

 

 

Above - simple sequence for single issuer, but You can extend it for iterate thru all defined issuers
