    Composing Message from FTP'd file

    Dennis Buttery Newbie

      Hi All,

       

          Still relatively new to ESB's ...

       

          I have a scheduled ESB that wakes up periodically and needs to fetch a file from an FTP site, do some transformations and then send the message on its way.

       

          My question is how to get the file contents composed into a message?

       

          Do I need to land the file first and then bring it in with Smooks or a custom file gateway?

       

          Is there a way to have the file's input stream coming from FTP fed directly into a composer?

       

      Thanks,

      -Dennis
