JBoss ESB - A simple file poller

A while ago I took JBoss ESB for a spin to see how it compares to other tools we frequently use (both in terms of features and usability). I created a few how-to videos which  can be used as a reference to implement some common usecases. Though they assume a working JBoss ESB server and the appropriate eclipse tooling, they are generally pretty straight forward.

This first video demonstrates how to set up a (very) simple file poller. Subsequent tutorials will highlight more advanced features like XSLT transformations, jBPM and some smooks-based csv parsing. Please note that it is best viewed at 1080p or original resolution.

  1. Is the source code available anywhere github etc?

  2. I'm afraid I no longer have the source code of those examples laying around. I tried to create the videos in such a way that the projects could be reproduced by following the instructions. Everything you need should be there.
