The option processStrategy can be used to use a custom GenericFileProcessStrategy that allows you to implement your own begin, commit and rollback logic. For instance let's assume a system writes a file in a folder you should consume. But you should not start consuming the file before another ready file have been written as well.

So by implementing our own GenericFileProcessStrategy we can implement this as:

  • In the begin() method we can test whether the special ready file exists. The begin method returns a boolean to indicate if we can consume the file or not.

  • In the abort() special logic can be executed in case the begin operation returned false, for example to cleanup resources, etc.

  • in the commit() method we can move the file and also delete the ready file.
