Pinned topic How could I work with property files in the ESB?

‏2012-03-14T13:03:50Z |
Hi,

I'm a noob,, I have what I guess it's a easy question!.

I want to read a properties file and get a data, later, I could use a "Set Mediation" to write that date in the context for working with it...

I dont know if websphere esb give me something for helping me on this task. Plus, the file could change depending of the environment(development, production, etc). How could I do that?

Thank you!.

    Oh!, I have been reading abour "Flat File service", but, I think that that's a little bit different that I'm looking for.

    I want to do, what I could do with "Database lookup Mediation", but, I dont want to look for my data in a database. Really, the database lookup would be pretty good because it has a promotion variable what you can change the table where you are getting the data.

      Hi
      Depending on your need there are several ways of doing it if you really want to use properties file. You can write a java code in custom mediation primitive that would read the file or you can do a look up using XSLT map (It has build in lookup engine). Hope that answers your query.

      Thanks.

        Thank you, I think that I'll read a file properties from custom mediation.

    If there is no constraint you can use promoted property instead of property file.

    Advantages
    Changes takes effect immediately and can be applied while application running
    Server/application doesn't need to be restarted/reinstalled
