Adapterflows let you to define your entry and exit from iCore Process Server in a pre-packaged way. You build your Adapterflows with ready-made elements, that can be configured to suit your needs.

Adapterflows must be configured in a Component configuration to be executed. Adapterflows are created and edited in the Adapterflow wizard.

Entry points

An Entry Point is the activity that starts the Adapterflow. There are two types of entry points:

  • Readers
    Readers poll with a specified interval to find data, for example new files in a directory. Readers are always trigger-based.
  • Listeners
    Listeners are constantly waiting for a specific event/incident to occur, for example the renaming of a file in a directory. Listeners may be trigger-based or event-based.

The Event Listener is the only event-based entry point, whereas all the others are trigger-based.
