I always find myself involved in integrations that require polling for a file on an external FTP server. By now, I have a neat little service (at least I think it’s neat :)) that takes care of some basic things related to this type of processing (ex. renaming/moving the file before processing, deleting/archiving the file after processing, etc, etc.) However, I was thinking it would be much neater if this functionality existed as an adapter-typa-thing, similar to the File Polling Port but with added parameters such as server name, username, and password.
I understand some other integration tools like BusinessWare and iWay provide this kind of adapter, so I was trying to figure out why the IS doesn’t… or does it?
