I am using tWaitForFile component for the first Time.

What is the job execution status if the component is present.

Will it continuously check for new up coming files without exit.

If It might be a burden on Execution sever if i am not wrong.

Can you please clarify,Its exact use and its execution process.





Re: tWaitForFile


The tWaitForFile component is used to put the component connected with it in waiting state. It then triggers that component when the defined file operation occurs in the specified directory.

Could you please have a look at this component reference:TalendHelpCenter:tWaitForFile to see if it is OK with you.

Best regards
