How to read an external file into BPM

I have a SOAP to File scenario that uses a collector pattern in BPM. A request triggers the BPM process, BPM collects and transforms some date and the data is written out to a report (a file). Now i have a new requirement - my BPM process needs to access some values from an existing file. How can i access an external file from BPM ?

If i can use an ICO for this somehow, the sender would need to be BPM and the received would also need to be BPM (to receive the content of the file).

    Hi Leo,

    You can create ICO with sender and receiver both BPM. Use java mapping to read and process the file (if file is directly placed at OS level).

    In same java mapping you can create response structure as well.

    Thanks,

    Hi Leo!

    Maybe it's not a quite straight-forward (and the best practise) decision, but I would consider using receiver java proxy for example, that reads file using java code and returns it in response message to BPM (or even processes that file and returns required values).
