Using the File Passthrough Service and Operation Classes

Ensemble also provides two general purposes classes to send and receive files in any format. These classes are as follows:

EnsLib.File.PassthroughService provides the setting, Target Config Names, which allows you to specify a comma-separated list of other configuration items within the production to which the business service should relay the message. Usually the list contains one item, but it can be longer. Target Config Names can include business processes or business operations.

EnsLib.File.PassthroughOperation provides the File Name setting, which allows you to specify an output file name. The FileName can include Ensemble time stamp specifiers. For full details, see “Time Stamp Specifications for Filenames” in Configuring Ensemble Productions.
