Processing files in Sequence using FTP Adapter

Hi Experts,
I have searched several forums but i am not clear on  how to process the files using FTP Adapter based on Timestamp.
To process the files in sequence i.e, FIFO using FTP Adapter
i have the files with file name customer and timestamp :  customer<yyyyMMddHHmmss>
there are around 50 files in the FTP server llike this.
I need to process these files acording to the timestamp and place the files in same processing sequence in the receiver end using the file adapter.
If i specify the parametes in sender FTP Adapter as
Queue name = ACCOUNT
Whether these parameters would do the processing in sequence according to the Timestamp?
Suppose if the queue ID for Inbound(SMQ2) is XBTI0_ACCOUNT then whether it will be the same for Outbound(SMQ1)?
Kindly suggest me how to process the files in sequence according to the Timestamp using FTP Adapter
Please reply..

Hi Shabarish,
But this would require one more additional channel to process
So i think it will take more time to process.
Let me clarify my question once again.
I need to Pick the files from FTP server based on their TimeStamp and in sequence.
the file names are like this Customer<YYYYMMDDHHmmSS>.
suppose i have 3 files as
So i need to pick these files in this order and place the files in the same order to the receiver end(File Adapter)
As i am using FTP sender adapter i cannot use processing sequence "By Date".
please suggest me on this.

  • Dynamic file name creation using FTP adapter wired from a mediator

    Hi All,
    My Requirement is as follows....
    Mediator is wired to Three FTP adapters to create three files.
    File names are dynamic.
    In the mediator those three routings, mappings and assignment for the directory and file name are being created.
    But out of 3 files, 2 files are being created with the names mentioned during the FTP adapter configuration and the last one is being created
    with the dynamic value.
    Any help in this regard is highly thankful.
    Thank you.

    Create a UDF in mapping taking counter from IDoc as input parameter
    DynamicConfiguration conf = (DynamicConfiguration) container.getTransformationParameters().get(StreamTransformationConstants.DYNAMIC_CONFIGURATION);
    DynamicConfigurationKey key = DynamicConfigurationKey.create("","FileName");
    String totalFilename = "AAAA_" + counter;
    return  totalFilename; 
    Map output of this UDF to Top node at target.
    you will not be able to see the result in test tab of mapping but it works end to end

  • Problem archiving file using FTP adapter

    I am polling some files from another server using FTP adapter in SOA 11g. Even though I have checked the option to archive the files, the files get archived successfully on the server where the SOA process is running, but I am unable to archive the files on the server from which I am reading the file
    I am not sure whether this is the default behaviour or is there any way to archive files on the same server from which I pick or read the file.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Hi Neeraj,
    Thanks, the archiving in the remoteLocation worked by doing what you told me...
    I tried archiving to the local machine which is not working for me ... i gave both the properties as below...
    <property name="UseRemoteArchive" value="false"/>
    <property name="PhysicalArchiveDirectory" value="C:\Users\naresh\Desktop\ftp"/>

  • Duplicate File issue using FTP adapter - BizTalk 2010

    Hi We encountered an Issue of picking Duplicate files in BizTalk 2010 from the FTP Location. Need your assistance on this.
    Mainframe sends multiple files a 0 KB file to FTP and BizTalk picks during a particular service window using FTP Adapter. 
    Receive Location has a pipeline component which decodes the MF file(EBCDICRow format). 
    Send Port transmits the file which is decoded in the Receive location. There is no mapping or orchestration involved. 
    When 2 files are placed in FTP Location. BizTalk Transmits the files successfully
    No suspended messages in BizTalk but we see below error in event log. we tried reproduce the issue but no luck. 
    Host Instance running FTP Location is Clustered  
     There was a failure executing the receive pipeline: "XXXX.XX.Pipelines.Receive_XXX_TransactionsMC_passthru, XXX.XX.Pipelines, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c2d1f476d5c2f97d"
    Source: "EbcdicRowDeCode" Receive Port: "XXX.XX.MCSTransactionsMC" URI: "ftp://XXXXXXXX:21/'XXXX'/MCSDT.DEFKOP.R001.D*.T*" Reason: Unable to cast object of type 'Microsoft.BizTalk.Streaming.BasicStreamWrapper' to type 'XXX.BizTalk.Pipeline.Components.Streams.V3.VirtualStream
    MF Puts below Files at FTP Location
    BizTalk Picks ( at specified Service window) and Transmits as 

    Hi Sri,
    There could be two reason for such a behavior:
    1) Using Non-Clustered Hosts: It is always recommended to use the clustered host for FTP adapter. Because FTP don't allow
    any locking mechanism on the files so in case of non-clustered with multiple host instances you might receive same file multiple times through different host instances.
    2) If the original document is still being written to the FTP server by the host application, the FTP adapter cannot
    delete the document and will retrieve another copy of the document at the next polling interval that is configured for the receive location. This behavior causes document duplication to occur. 
    Workaround could be:
    Configure the host application to write to a temporary folder on the same hard disk as the public FTP folder and to periodically move the contents of the temporary folder
    to the FTP folder. The temporary folder should be on the same hard disk as the public FTP folder to make sure that the move operation is atomic. An atomic operation is an operation that is functionally indivisible. If you write data to the public FTP folder
    by using the BizTalk Server FTP adapter, you can do this by specifying a Temporary Folder property in the FTP Transport Properties dialog box when you configure a send port. If you specify a Temporary Folder property, make sure that this folder is on the same
    physical disk as the public FTP folder.
    Configure the FTP receive location to operate within a service window when the host application is not writing data to the FTP server. You can specify the service window
    when you configure the receive location properties.

  • Writing timestamp on the content of file (not the filename) using FTP Adapt

    Hi Experts,
    Is it possible to write a timestamp (from the source server) to a target logfile if I'll use FTP Adapter?
    Here the scenario:
    source.log -> the contents is AAAA (the timestamp base from the server is [06/09/10 10:00])
    - basically the source.log file is overwritten with the same content but the timestamp is changed so that's would be scenario
    it will checked by the FTP adapter....
    target.log -> the content of the file is 06/09/10 10:00
    so probably if i have a target logfile I'll just have to append the file as this
    06/09/10 10:00
    06/09/10 10:02
    06/09/10 10:04
    06/09/10 10:06
    06/09/10 10:08
    06/09/10 10:10
    If it's possible, how will I do this? Do I need script? or just normal settings of the FTP adapter?

    Yes, is posibble. if i not wrong, you can do this ussing Dynamic configuration.

  • How to use FTPS using FTP adapter

    I am trying to create one BPEL process using SOA 11g, which will put file on remote location using ftp adapter. I have created JNDI properly and using wallet.
    useFtps= True
    walletLocation= correct path of wallet created in Oracle HTTP Server(OHS)
    walletPassword = walletPassword
    host = ipaddress
    username = myUsername
    password = myPassword
    For all this I have followed
    Now, whenever I try to test that BPEL process it gives me error:
    "Exception occured during invocation of JCA binding: "JCA Binding execute of Reference operation 'Put' failed due to: Error in establishing SSL session. Error in establishing SSL session. Unable to establish SSL session on control channel. Reply String: 530 Please login with USER and PASS. Reply Code: 530) Please correct the setup for SSL. ". The invoked JCA adapter raised a resource exception. Please examine the above error message carefully to determine a resolution"
    Any suggestion or resolutions are welcome.

    When you configure the Connection Factory for FTP Adapter in Admin Console, provide the following values for the attributes like the hostname, username, password, port and the path of remote location as where
    you want to write the file in remote Server i.e., ftpAbsolutePathBegin. Please fill this
    attribute with the path like /soa/ftp/file (example path). If you are writing to a remote FTP server you need to create a Connection factory for that as above.
    Please try this and let me know...

  • How to change the JCA JNDI dynamically using FTP Adapter

    We have 5 FTP Servers, each having a directory to poll. We have created 5 CCI instances for these FTP Adapters in the FTPAdapter deployment. We created a BPEL process and using FTP Adapter to connect to above mentioned servers.
    Question: Customer's requirement is to use a single BPEL process to poll all these FTP Servers at a specified date and time. How can we connect dynamically to each FTP server at specified time.
    Is there any way to change the JCAJNDI dynamically in a FTP Adapter configuration ?
    I have seen that FTP Adapter POLL doesnt take any JCA JNDI/hostname/un/pwd/date/time dynamically.

    Hi Pavan,
    It's possible to change the JNDI dynamically but only when you use put operation where you can control the JNDI name at the time of invoking the FTP Adapter as described in below link.
    Dynamic JNDI in FTP Adapter | jca.jndi property not picked by Adapter
    However, can you consider using BPEL process with SyncRead (and read files through all the JNDIs in a loop) and scheduling this BPEL process to a desired frequency?
