Java Developers Take a Closer Look at Managed File Transfer
In a service oriented architecture world, bulk data transfer occurs largely by way of file transfer. David Sims, president of Flux, a leading cross-platform workload automation and managed file transfer solution, presents Managed File Transfer in Enterprise Java Applications, a vendor-neutral look at the challenges faced by Java developers in file orchestration. Originally published on TheServerSide.com, this includes metrics that provide information on the volume and timeliness of file transfers for infrastructure planners, IT management, and business management. Alongside these metrics, other questions are addressed:
- What about error handling and enforcing service level agreements (SLAs)?
- How about integration into the business processes and workflows of your organization and that of your trading partners?
- At various points in the file transfer lifecycle, IT operations staff must be engaged to troubleshoot delayed and failed transfers. How is that addressed?
- What should you look for when meeting your organization’s strict security requirements?
Gartner may have retired the Managed File Transfer Magic Quadrant this year, but that hasn’t stopped the enormous amount of business-to-business file transfer traffic or the requirements that Enterprise Java developers strive to meet. File transfer remains a critical component of enterprise architectures. Enterprise Java developers are all familiar with point-to-point file transfers. However, the demands of enterprise file transfers require more sophistication. Managed file transfer provides the solution.
The article outlines the challenges and gives detailed examples with helpful insight from an industry veteran.
