Example: File Transfer using JITL Job

The following scenario is given:

  • JobScheduler reads a status information from an Oracle database table scenario1 where we store values every 5 minutes
    • For this demo we handle the table as if  there were just one row of data.

If the column value of scenario1.Status = “GO” then

  • read additional FTP attributes from an database table, i.e. SourceFilePath, SourceFileName, TargetFilePath, TargetFileName, EncryptedYN.
  • store FTP attributes as memory variables for later use.
  • call YADE to transfer files by SFTP using its configuration from the stored memory variables.
  • If SourceFile does not exist
    • send e-mail indicating the error including the file properties (source file name, source file size, source file date/time created, date/time of failure, target file name, target directory, failure detail)
  • If SourceFile does exist
    • If EncryptedYN has the value Y
      • execute encryption routine
    • perform SFTP file transfer to target system
    • confirm that the file has been successfully received at the destination.
    • If the file has not been successfully received at the destination
      • send mail indicating the error that occurred including the file properties (source file name, source file size, source file date/time created, date/time of failure, target file name, target directory, failure detail)
    • If the file has been successfully received
      • send a confirmation mail including the file properties (source file name, source file size, source file date/time created, date/time of failure, target file name, target director)
  • Log All transport activities
  • Create PDF report of all transport activities between two dates/times

Representation of the Solution

Components of the Solution

checkDB: Access to Oracle database using pl/sql

For the connection to the Oracle™ DBMS we use the pl/sql script plsql_script.txt which is executed by the Java adapter class sos.scheduler.db.JobSchedulerPLSQLJobJSAdapterClass.

The pl/sql script is defined as:

	status 			varchar2(64);
	sourcefilepath 	varchar2(2048);
	sourcefilename 	varchar2(2048);
	targetfilepath 	varchar2(2048);
	targetfilename 	varchar2(2048);
	encryptedyn 	varchar2(16);

	into   status, sourcefilepath, sourcefilename, targetfilepath, targetfilename, encryptedyn
	from scenario1;
	dbms_output.put_line('status=' || status);
	dbms_output.put_line('sourcefilepath=' || sourcefilepath);
	dbms_output.put_line('sourcefilename=' || sourcefilename);
	dbms_output.put_line('targetfilepath=' || targetfilepath);
	dbms_output.put_line('targetfilename=' || targetfilename);
	dbms_output.put_line('encryptedyn=' || encryptedyn);

The parameters used by the adapter class are

  • name of the pl/sql script and where it is found
  • name of the database and access parameters

For the interpretation of the column value of scenario1.Status being "GO" some post-processing routine is used (here programmed in javax.script:rhino)

function spooler_process_after(spooler_process_result)
  var params = spooler_task.order().params();
  var status = params.value("status");
  if ( status == "GO" )
	{"Table status is \"GO\", continue!");
	{"Waiting until table status is \"GO\" ...");

  return spooler_process_result;

CheckFileExists: check if file exists

checkEncrypted: Interpretation of Parameter encryptedyn

The value of the parameter encryptedyn decides whether the file is to be encrypted or not. The encryption is done for a local copy of the file, therefore different steps of the job chain are used. The functions are part of the job checkEncrypted programmed in javax.script:rhino.

function spooler_process() {"------- " + + " -------");
	var encryptedyn = spooler_task.order().params().value("encryptedyn");
	if ( "Y" == encryptedyn )
	{"Encryption required");
	else if ( "N" == encryptedyn )
	{"No encryption required");
		spooler_log.error("encryptedyn = \"" + encryptedyn + "\" (must be Y or N)");
		return false;

	return true;

In case of encryption we use the following steps:

  • transportSourceToLocal: copy file from source system to local system
  • encrypt: encrypt file
  • transportLocalToTarget: copy file from local system to target system

Without encryption only one transfer is used to copy the file from source to target in step

  • transportSourceToTarget

Transport Steps

The transport steps are using the JITL job sos.scheduler.jade.JadeJob.

The following parameters are required as per step:

encrypt: encryption of the local file

In our example the encryption is only simulated. An own routine may be used here.

Report: Mailing a report

A mail is generated to send the YADE history file as an example for a report. External report features may be used here. The JITL job sos.scheduler.managed.JobSchedulerManagedMailJob is used here to manage the mail.
