    fs listener input suffix

    blep Newbie


      I tried to remove the input-suffix from the fs-listener config but I got during deployment:

      Caused by: org.jboss.soa.esb.ConfigurationException: Required configuration property 'inputSuffix' not defined on configuration 'listener'.
       at org.jboss.soa.esb.helpers.ConfigTree.getRequiredAttribute(ConfigTree.java:242)
       at org.jboss.soa.esb.listeners.gateway.AbstractFileGateway.checkMyParms(AbstractFileGateway.java:313)
       at org.jboss.soa.esb.listeners.gateway.AbstractFileGateway.<init>(AbstractFileGateway.java:89)
       at org.jboss.soa.esb.listeners.gateway.FileGatewayListener.<init>(FileGatewayListener.java:45)
       ... 55 more

      So I tried to set it to an empty string with the same result.

      Then I came in the forum to check if anybody met this issue or asked for this feature and I read http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=116412 and found the feature request JBESB-454.

      So I checked in the source code and I found the changes:

      public class FileGatewayListener extends AbstractFileGateway {
       public FileGatewayListener(ConfigTree config) throws ConfigurationException, RegistryException, GatewayException {
       super(config); ---------> Line 45
       * JBESB-454 allowed gateways to pull files with any extension. Obvious
       * security issue, but we are explicit about this in the docs and users
       * should beware.
       if ((_inputSuffix == null) || (_inputSuffix.equals(""))) {
       * If no suffix, then inputDir must be different from outputDir
       * or we go into an infinite loop. Already checked through
       * checkMyParams.
       _inputFileFilter = null;
       * If no input suffix, then we must have a work suffix and we
       * must ignore worker files when sourcing new input files, or
       * we end up in an infinite loop.
       _ignoreFileFilter = new IgnoreFile(_workingSuffix, _errorSuffix, _postProcessSuffix);
       } else
       _inputFileFilter = new FileEndsWith(_inputSuffix);

      The AbstractFileGateway base class constructor is invoked prior to any treatment about the possibility to not set input-suffix (invoking super() in line 45), so it seems to be normal to get the exception.

      So is it a jbossesb.xml setting problem? Do I have to set it differently when I want a FS listener without any input-suffix? Is it a jbossesb problem?
