EAI File Transport Parameters

In addition to the common parameters presented in Common EAI Transport Parameters, the EAI File Transport takes the parameters presented in Table 29. These parameters can be specified as service method arguments, subsystem parameters, or user properties.

Table 29. EAI File Transport Parameters
Display Name

Append To File


Default is False. A value of True means that if the file exists, the method appends the message to the existing file. A value of False specifies that the method overwrites any existing file.

Delete File after Receive


Default is False. A value of True means that an attempt is made to delete the file after receiving it. If permissions prevent deletion, no error is given, but the information is traced.

File Name


The name of the file to be received by the file transport.

For the Send method, if a file name is not provided, a random name is used for the output file. You must specify an explicit path for file name. You can also use $$ as the wildcard symbol in the file name. For example, if you specify a file name of "file$$.xml," then Siebel creates files like file1-134.xml, fileA25.xml, and file242_12B.xml.

For the Receive method, a specific file name must be provided. The use of wildcards such as $$ is not allowed. The source file is deleted upon receiving if set to True. If set to False (the default), the source file is not deleted.

Response File Name


Name of the file containing the response when using the SendReceive Method.

Sleep Time


The timeout interval on receive calls, in milliseconds.

This specifies the maximum amount of time that the service waits for a response. Default is 20000 milliseconds.
