Add a polling feature to IBM Sterling B2B Integrator similar - to the IBM Sterling GENTRAN polling feature.
The GENTRAN polling feature we have used for years had made it possible to be very close to RealTIME in processing and getting files to their destination. Our internal systems and external customers have come to expect this, especially to meet SLAs.
GENTRAN can poll our windows network shares for files scanning hundreds of folders every couple of minutes, once a file is found, it kicks off the GENTRAN event to process the file(s). Not all files show up on a specific schedule. We can receive files to process at any time of day and most of them need to get to their destination asap.
Not sure why B2Bi that was meant to replace GENTRAN left out this important feature. We were told during demos of B2Bi that it had this capability. It was one of the top reasons we went with B2Bi.
