I have searched the forums high and low, still not getting what I need. I am receiving PDF files as attachments via e-mail. Using GetTransportInfo to get the information about the attachment (file name, type, sender, etc., etc.). I simply want to move the PDF file attachment thru IS to an external shared drive using pub.client:ftp.
The PDF file is successfully read and the ftp successfully puts it to the appropriate share drive BUT…the file is empty. Here’s the flow:
pub.io:streamToBytes (to map content from stream to bytes)
I do not want to save the attachment as a file to the local area…seems a useless step. But, I can easily ftp an existing PDF file from IS local area to the share drive and it stays intact.
Question 1: How can I simply read the PDF attachement in by e-mail and send out to share?
Question 2: How can I learn about working with different file types and what I need to do to process/move them? It seems each file type (xls, doc, txt, pdf,…) requires multiple steps to convert it from one thing to another. How and where can I learn about this? Built-In Services Reference tells little. webMethods Advantage even less. How does anyone learn to use what webMethods has to offer?
Thanks for any info and feedback!
