Subject Re: File-component will not find new files and lock does not work
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2007 15:38:28 GMT
Hi Again

The error seems to be in on the pollFile-method

If a file is copied in to the monitored directory, and the file has a 
modifies-timestamp which is older than the lastPollTime, it will not be 
(This can be solved by remembering the name and modification time of 
processed files, and process files which is not in this list)

Code with error is below

protected void pollFile(final File file) {
        if (!file.exists()) {
       if (isValidFile(file)) {
            // we only care about file modified times if we are not 
deleting/moving files
            if (endpoint.isNoop()) {
                long fileModified = file.lastModified();
                if (fileModified <= lastPollTime) {
                    if (LOG.isDebugEnabled()) {
                        LOG.debug("Ignoring file: " + file + " as 
modified time: " + fileModified + " less than last poll time: " + 
            } else {
                if (filesBeingProcessed.contains(file)) {
                filesBeingProcessed.put(file, file);
