Subject RE: First time create SFTP File and then Append to same in loop.
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2016 17:22:46 GMT
Hi Clause,

The problem is -- First time execution creates the file and in loop appends the data. Now
the process ends and file is available at SFTP folder. Second time execution, it will again
append resulting to business logic failure, as file should be created fresh - and user might
give FIXED name of the file.  

What I want is during execution, first time SFTP Endpoint should have fileExist=Override and
when the loop gets triggered, change the SFTP property fileExist to APPEND. 

I was looking something like -- during the loop, MyProcessor can either change the configuration
of SFTP Endpoint or set a header which SFTP Endpoint honors above the URI options provided.

	Approach 1:  camelContext.getEndpoint("<some-id-of-sftp-endpoint>", SftpEndpoint.class).setFileExists(GenericFileExists.APPEND)
	Approach 2: in.setHeader("fileExists", GenericFileExists.APPEND);

Can you not just use fileExists=Append always so the data is always
appended if the file exists?
