Creating a schedule job to compress and archive webMethods log files automatically

Dear members,
Hope everyone is doing great.
Can someone help me How we can creat a schedule job to compress and archive webMethods log files automatically.

Its urgent , pls help me.

Archive of webMethods log files inside IS/logs folder will happen by default. You would have seen the older files appended with date. For compression of the same, you have to write some custom service and schedule it to run everyday once.

Hi Senthil,

Thanks for your reply, Since I dont much experience in webmethods, Could you pls help me the procedure(steps) how we can write the code.

You can write a java service to do the same… Here is a sample…

// pipeline
IDataCursor pipelineCursor = pipeline.getCursor();
String fileName = IDataUtil.getString( pipelineCursor, “fileName” );
String fileDir = IDataUtil.getString( pipelineCursor, “fileDir” );
String inputString = IDataUtil.getString( pipelineCursor, “inputString” );
String zipFileName = IDataUtil.getString( pipelineCursor, “zipFileName” );
String zipFileDir = IDataUtil.getString( pipelineCursor, “zipFileDir” );
pipelineCursor.destroy();

// pipeline
zipFileName = zipFileDir+zipFileName;
byte buf = new byte[1024];
try {
ZipOutputStream out = new ZipOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(zipFileName));
// Compress the files
FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream(fileDir+fileName);
out.putNextEntry(new ZipEntry(fileName));

        // Transfer bytes from the file to the ZIP file
            out.write(inputString.getBytes());
        // Complete the entry
            out.closeEntry();
            in.close();
        // Complete the ZIP file
            out.close();
    } catch (IOException e) {

    }
