Passing a file via File Adapter without renaming.

We have a scenario whereby we pick up a file locally using a file adapter set up as a sender in local NFS file mode, and then pass that file through PI without mapping or conversion to XML.

We would like to send the file via a file adapter set up as a receiver in FTP mode, and to use the filename that was recognised by the sending adapter. However, I cannot see a way to do this.

is this possible?

if we want to get the Output file as same as Input file name. What ever the Input file name may be, the Output file name should be as same as the Input Picked File name means,

1)Sender File Adapter side,In Advanced mode check the check box Set Adapter-Specific Attributes

---Select File name

2) You can give any Dummy name at Receiver File channel for the Receiver File Name

3)Check the Check box Use Adapter-Specific Attributes in the receiver side also.


Select the file Name Option
