Outbound file adapter


We currently run a number of interfaces whereby XML messages are appended to a single file, the interfaces are scheduled via Tivoli. We would like to be able to schedule the stopping and starting of a single file adapter via Tivoli, does anyone know how to do this? Is there a shell script that can be run or is it possible to write one? I have checked the documentation and the contents of the tech_adapter directory but cannot come up with any way of doing this. The only solution we have come up with so far is stopping and starting the adapter engine but as we run all our file adapters on a single server this is impractical.

Thanks your help

    If Tivoli can send http requests, then it can simply request e.g.




    to, respectively, stop and start an adapter. It will probably need to provide a username and password to do this.

    Best regards,
