JBoss ESB File Gateway queries

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We are configuring JBoss ESB File Gateway and listeners. The setup seems to work quite ok for one server, but we have some questions regarding the setup with 2 servers.

1.) If the same file is inserted into the input-directory twice and the post-directory is configured, the second file get processed, but the *inProcess file is not removed from the input-directory. Is this a bug or expected behaviour?

2.) If we use a shared directory for the input-directory and we have two or more File Gateways/Listeners listening to the shared directory, is it guaranteed that the same file won't get processed more than once?
