The File connector allows you to connect to different file systems and perform various operations with the file systems. The file connector version 2 uses the Apache Commons VFS I/O functionalities to execute operations.

WSO2 ESB File connector version2 introduces the atomic operation related to the file system and allows you to easily manipulate files based on your requirement. The file streaming functionality using Apache Commons I/O lets you copy large files and reduces the file transfer time between two file systems resulting in a significant improvement in performance that can be utilized in file operations.


To get started and perform various operations with the connector, go to Working with the File Connector.
