  • Adapter Factory?

    I am a newb, and I have a few questions:

    Has anyone experimented with/written what might be considered a Adapter Factory? This might allow for the channeling of files from a range of directories on the same system? I am not sure architecturally if this can be achieved, but I do need to look in multiple directories on each poll, from numerous adapters....

    What is the best way to capture information about a remote directory and file and pass it to the channel from a SFTP Inbound adapter? or should I say numerous inbound adapters....

    Scenario: scan directories for files. Based on the directory of origin, route them to the appropriate aggregator and then release the merged files periodically....can I use an Interceptor's preReceive to get the remote directory and put it in a header-enricher?

    Ideas? thoughts?

    No love for the newb...Ill try to rephrase

    For a single process, I need to push a file, pick it up when its done (inbound adapter poller)
    Then push it to another system (bridge) and pick up a 'response' file, then push it, so on and so forth until it is at the end of the process where it is placed into one of numerous folders:

    I am looking for an easy way to periodically take ALL the files from customerA, aggregate, and put somewhere for pick up. I need to repeat this for each Customer...

    I am hoping NOT to have to use an adapter --> channel --> aggreagator --> channel --> adapter for each Customer.

    Any ideas - I can use three adapters and send them all to the same chain (aggregator, router) as long as I can get information about the folder (or adapter if I must use one for each folder) from which the file originates....ideas?

      You can pass a Message whose payload is a MimeMailMessage type (a Spring Framework support class for email). That then provides a MimeMessageHelper instance as a property. See the JavaDoc for that, and you will find many methods for dealing with attachments.

      Hope that helps.

        I just noticed that you had added your question to an unrelated topic. Can you please start a new thread if you have any follow-up questions?, and in the future, please do not take over other peoples' threads.

          Sorry for what happened above (see my previous reply to Ramesh). If you can start by answering Oleg's question above that ... then we can help you explore the options.

            huh? Not sure what this refers to...

              It referes to the fact that @Ramesh has posted a question that was unrelated to your original post
