Open Dynamic file in a Directory

I Have a Directory name like "Location" in that directory the users are post daily a file like IL0012, IL0013,ILdd like that.So i wnat to open that file in read mode so i tried to open like this
f1 utl_file.file_type;
like that above i have permisions to Location directory.and also after reading file i want to delete that file If i have a fixed filen name i ma bale to read file but the problem is for dynamic file name.
any help

Your problem is not clear. What is the problem with dynamic file? Do you want to work with a single file or multiple files in that directory? If it is a single file then how do you determine which file you want to work with?
If you want to work with all the files there then probably try something like, loop through some dynamic construction of IL followed by 4 character left padded value of number from 1 to 31/365/whatever you want.
use the UTL_FILE.FGETATTR to know if the file exists, open it, read it and do what you want.
use the UTL_FILE.FREMOVE to delete the file, if you have permissions.
PS: I don't have permissions here to demonstrate an example.

  • Dynamic File Name and Directory File Sender Adapter

    Hello gurus,
    I have a question: Is there any way to make the File Name, and Directory Dynamic of a File Sender Communication Channel ?
    For example, taking it as a parameter from a Web Service Request.. (I mean, the only way with this would be a ccBPM). I don't exactly know if there is a way, I just thought about this.
    Please tell me if someone could make Dynamic these 2 parameters while picking a file.

    oops,thought i was replying to the PgP question:)
    I think you should be able to achieve this via adapter module but i m not really sure how exactly it will be done .

  • Open a file in a servlet

    I am using Tomcat 4.0.4 as my servlet engine.
    I have trouble in opening a file, when I want to open a file in current directory, I use
    File counter = new File("counter.txt");
    It points to the file c:\Tomcat\bin\counter.txt instead of the file in the directory d:\websites\servlets\WEB-INF\com\internal\servlet\counter.txt.
    Is there any way I can open the file I want? Please help me and thank you in advance.

    Thank you. I get it done.
    One more question. will different servlet engine gives different result in getRealPath("/"). Just want to make sure this technique works across different servlet engine.

  • Opening a file in JSP

    hi there,
    How can i open a file, for example, a text file in JSP? Although i can do this if i place the file in a certain folder, i want to be able to open the file at any directory. Is it possible to do this?

    yeep.. since Jsp is essentially a servlet and running on the server you can open anything you want...
    in your <%page%> tag you'll have to add import="*" and then use a FileInputStream or your favorite method of reading the file in and use out.print to display the text of it... kinda similar to:
    <%page import="*" content-type="text/plain"%>
       FileInputStream tis=new FileInputStream("c:\windows\comsetup.log");
       byte[] da=new byte[8192];
       while(len!=-1) {
    %>that'd do it.... you can change how the browser "reacts" by changing the content-type at the top...

  • Can I use Desktop.getDesktop().open(file) to open a file instead of Applet

    I was assigned a task in which a file has to be downloaded from a server. Right now, the code was already there which is written using applet. That is file is downloaded to local directory then it will get opened. Why cant I code in the following way.
    1. Reading the file from the server and writing it to a local directory.
    2. Opening the file from that directory using Desktop.getDesktop().open(file)
    Since I am a newbie to java i could not understand the difference between these two things.
    can anyone please explain me so that i can proceed with the right way.
    Thanks in Advance.

    2. Opening the file from that directory using Desktop.getDesktop().open(file)This is highly confusing. What you describe is what is apparently implemented in this applet. So what do you want to code differently? And WHERE do you want to run this code? There must be a reason why it is right now an applet. Are you talking about a web environment like servlets/JSPs?

  • How to open and read many files from a directory and store contents in 2D array?

    I want to make a VI that opens and reads the data from various files contained in a directory (200 files each with 2 columns) and store these in a single 2D array. For file number 1 I want to store the data from both columns in the 2D array, but for files 2 to 200 I only want to store the second column of each file. Can someone please help?

    Hi Nadav,
    Thanks for your help. I have followed your instructions but i cannot get it to work. I used the LIST DIRECTORY to list the files in the directory - that works. However, how do I read each of the 200 files using READ FROM SPREADSHEET FILE without me having to manually select each of the 200 files? So, if I use LIST DIRECTORY to list all 200 files in an array, how do I get each of these to open and store the data in a 2D array? Here is what I have done (File called read_files.VI) Could you please help me? Thank you very much in advance.

    Try these 3 solutions
    1. Did you start vncserver services as:
    service vncserver start
    2.Check that port 5901 has not been blocked by a firewall:
    # nc -vz localhost 5901
    You should get a connection and a termination. If you get an error, fix the firewall.
    3. service iptables stop
    Hope This Helps

  • Script to open all PST files in a directory and open with Outlook.

    Hi!  I am looking for a script that opens all PST files in a directory, opens it in outlook, and writes to a log to see if it completed correctly.  I'm new to VBscript and just want to see how the script would be written.

  • Dynamic File and Directory Name without Mapping

    Hello Experts,
    We have following requirement:
    1) Files will be picked from R/3 AL11 directory and would be placed in corresponding folder in target system.
    2) On source side ,there would be only one folder for all types of files(around 20),but on target side,there would be one folder for each kind of file(20 folders)
    3) File name should be same on the target side but target directory should be selected based on file name.
    I have gone through a number of posts related to similar requirements and hence,sorry for a new post but I am not yet able to find a solution to this.
    I could understand,this can be achieved using DynamicConfiguration UDF .
    But I have no possibility to have mapping in my scenario.It would just be a pass through scenario.
    Can anyone please suggest a solution to this?

    Thanks a lot for suggesting solution to this problem.
    I could achieve this using following Java mapping:
    import java.text.*;
    import java.util.*;
    public class GetDynamicConfiguration implements StreamTransformation {
        private Map param;
        public void setParameter(Map map1) {
            this.param = map1;
        public void execute(InputStream inputstream, OutputStream outputstream) throws StreamTransformationException {
            try {
                   AbstractTrace  trace = null;
                // a) Set ouput File name
                String directory=null;
                   trace = (AbstractTrace)param.get(StreamTransformationConstants.MAPPING_TRACE );
                param.put(DynamicConfigurationKey.create("", StreamTransformationConstants.DYNAMIC_CONFIGURATION), "");
                DynamicConfiguration conf = (DynamicConfiguration) param.get(StreamTransformationConstants.DYNAMIC_CONFIGURATION);
                DynamicConfigurationKey key = DynamicConfigurationKey.create("", "FileName");
                   DynamicConfigurationKey key1 = DynamicConfigurationKey.create("", "Directory");
                String filename =conf.get(key);
                conf.put(key, filename);
                   trace.addInfo("File name is "+filename);
                directory = "/home/ftpxi/in";
                   directory = "/home/ftpxi/in/test";
                   directory = "/home/ftpxi/in/test";
                   trace.addInfo("Directory name is "+directory);
                   conf.put(key1, directory);
                // b) Just copy input file to output file
                byte[] b = new byte[inputstream.available()];
            } catch (Exception exception) {
    Thanks again.
