Subject File can't be moved or deleted on Windows
Date Fri, 02 Jul 2010 00:33:50 GMT

I'm using Camel 2.3.0 on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit with JDK 1.6.0_20 64-bit. I
have come across an issue with the file component where the file being read
cannot be moved or deleted after processing, when using a split. I can
reproduce this every time. Here is a simple version of my route setup using
a Spring context which will cause the problem:

<camel:camelContext id="camelContext">
  <camel:template id="camelTemplate" />
    <camel:from uri="file:data" />
      <camel:tokenize token="\n" />
      <camel:to uri="mock:out" />

My import file is a small, 2 line file. Using this route will result in an
error when processing is complete, and Camel gets in a loop where it keeps
reloading the file (as the file wasn't moved from the poll directory).

Interestingly, if I do not use a split, the file is moved without an issue:

<camel:camelContext id="camelContext">
  <camel:template id="camelTemplate" />
    <camel:from uri="file:data" />
    <camel:to uri="mock:out" />

Also, on Linux, this problem does not occur at all, with or without the
