Subject Suggestion : component to scan a file (like tail, mtail, ...)
Date Sun, 21 Jun 2009 16:11:50 GMT

I would like to have the point of view of the others camel riders concerning
the following component :

File scan component

The idea behind this component is to have an equivalent of the tail (unix
function) or mtail (under Windows) program who scan lines added to a file.
Using a filter processor in combination with this component, we scan
generates alerts, ... depending of the info discovered in the file

I have found this idea after investigating how I can start one of my route
in camel if a FIX connection is established with FIX server. When such a
connection is established and is alive, the quickfix engine generates
entries in a log file. With the help a file scan component I could take the
decision to start or stop my routes. Why, because it makes no sense to send
messages to the quickfix endpoint if the FIX server is down, if we are
outside of business hours, ....
