Oracle Managed File Transfer (MFT), a companion product to SOA that helps organizations regain control over file exchanges and solve the problems created by the uncontrolled proliferation of FTP servers.
Here is a simple example based on MFT running on a compact domain.
The MFT design time is web based.
I login as weblogic/welcome1
There are 3 tabs -
Let's start with a very banal example - I want to transfer files from one directory
I have 2 test files -
I can create the relevant Transfer in the Design Tab.
1. Create the Source
2. Create the Target
3. Create the Transfer
I select File
I specify a folder
I do the same for the Target.
I now create the Transfer
The very intuitive UI lets me specify the transfer. All I need to do is select
Source and Targets.
Here I can add the source I previously created.
Note the supplementary functionality available here in respect of filtering and security.
I then add the target, previousl created.
Note the supplementary functionality available here in respect of scheduling, pre- and post-processing.
Deploy the transfer -
Test, by dropping the files into the source folder -
