Subject Re: Exclude Camel from Antivirus Scan?
Date Tue, 12 Nov 2013 14:26:04 GMT
Hi Jack,

This is a Windows specific issue (as other OSes do not lock files). That 
aside, you have a conflict between two tools that perform automatic 
processing of files. Unless you manage to provide some sort of 
synchronization you cannot avoid the problem. One way is to eliminate 
one of the tools (the antivirus, by telling IT to exclude the Camel 
folder). This is usually not wrong, depending on the kind of files you 
use. There is a more complex solution that I believe would work that 
involves defining a custom error handler [1] to ignore the errors caused 
by locked files and possibly a redelivery policy [2]. Knowing what kind 
of files you process, you're in the best position to decide which path 
is better.

I hope this helps,

Could you advise?
