The WSO2 ESB local file custom inbound protocol is a multi-tenant capable alternative to file inbound protocol. Current   file inbound    support for ftp, sftp and local files, but local file inbound will only support for local files. The ESB file inbound protocol uses the   VFS transport to process files in a specified source directory. The local file inbound uses java NIO API to process files in a specific directory. After processing the files, it moves them to a specified location or deletes them. Note that by default files will remain in the source directory after processing.
