Subject Re: File processing patterns

could you break the problem in two stage, one that just use a custom filter
on the file consumer, responsible for letting all files in a set goes into
a sub-folder on your filesystem (or the sftp one) only if all files are

And a second route, polling from the root of those sub-folder (on for each
set) and implement your 'transacted' like logic of processing.

But for the first stage, it implies that you have access to the file list
(as suggested in the first of your mentioned link).

A would like to know the end story of your question, as I give it some
thoughts and not find a very 'clever' solution ;-)
