KB0012454 – Folder Monitoring Is Not Responsive

Applies to: All versions of Ephesoft Transact

Issue

After dropping new files into the watch folder in Transact, it may take some time for the system to generate batch subfolders, and the system may fail to add batch subfolders to a batch instance. Restarting Transact causes new files and batch instances to be immediately picked up.

Solution

Enable the folder monitor cron job.

  1. Stop Ephesoft Transact.
  2. Open the folder-monitor.properties file, located at [Ephesoft_Directory]\Application\WEB-INF\classes\META-INF\dcma-folder-monitor.
  3. Turn off the folder monitor jNotify switch. This will enable the cron job.
foldermonitor.jnotify_switch=false
  1. Start Ephesoft Transact.
