FILE EVENT, can't make it work

  • 1.  FILE EVENT, can't make it work

    Posted 08-28-2017 06:45 AM
    I am creating a simple file system event to watch for some directory and if any one of the file size exceeds 1 byte the event should get triggered.

    And in Event Process page, I have the following:

    This is a WIN permission issue.

    Try to use a subdirectory e.g. C:\Temp\*.txt and it will work.

    FrankMuffke thank you.

    Yes, I can see the file is getting created now after moving to the temp directory of watch path.

    But, I can see ":PRINT" statement not working in "Event Process" tab, is this expected?

    I suppose this is an AWI issue.

    If you go to Statistics of your EVNT object in JAVA client - your execution and Child statistics - Report you will see your print.

    Possibly I missed something, I am not an AWI expert, but i did not find any Report Button within the !EVNT executions section....

    FYI - opened an INC @ Support to clearify this.

    Forget AWI and use Java native interface !!! Less issue and easier to us ....

    Your code should go to the !Process tab not the Process Tab.

    I am using the !Process tab only.

    Just tried it with AWI 12.0.3 - The !EVNT - Execution and its report is now available.
