Camel SFTP component not working in JBoss SOA-P 5.2 or 5.3.0

Solution Verified - Updated -


There's a bug in the Camel 2.4.0 that's distributed with SOA 5.3.0. The SFTP module can't fetch files from an absolute directory.

The issue has been discussed in the Camel mailing-list.

And there classified as a bug. For us this shows up when we have a Camel fetch like this:


(or //data1/easiakas/heracles_finvoice/download/invoice/, doesn't matter, and even non-absolute heracles_finvoice/download/invoice/ won't work):

17:45:51,688 INFO  [CamelRouteBuilder] Started message processing in camel input route. Filename: uuid: 74143f3e-68fe-4f04-a784-087af57c735c
18:02:14,701 ERROR [SftpConsumer] Caused by: [org.apache.camel.component.file.GenericFileOperationFailedException - Cannot retrieve file: data1/easiakas/heracles_finvoice/download/invoice/]
org.apache.camel.component.file.GenericFileOperationFailedException: Cannot retrieve file: data1/easiakas/heracles_finvoice/download/invoice/

So it finds the, but it can't download it, since it's in the wrong directory or tries to change directory to a wrong one.
