This Receiver Adapter is able to read a file from a directory (NFS/FTP/SSH) and process it further.
The standard SAP File Sender Adapter is only able to continuously poll a directory and delete/archive the file or re-send the file from a source folder. There are many scenarios where it makes sense to read a file from a directory event-driven or triggered by a sender system where the file has to remain at its source.
The FileReader Adapter works in a synchronous mode on the receiver side.
Queries can be done either
- synchronously where the file is returned to the sender directly as a response message or
- asynchronously where the file can be sent to any receiver by using the RequestResponseBean
