SOA 12c – Managed File Transfer Hands On by Vivek Garg


clip_image002MFT (Managed File Transfer) is out of box functionality introduced in Oracle SOA 12c. By using MFT we can securely exchange the files between two internal or external points. In this post, we will see how to transfer one sample file from one local folder to another local folder. You can also transfer the file to any other point like FTP, SFTP etc but for simplicity we took local folders.

et’s start with the exercise, first open the MFT console by going to (http://host:port/mftconsole) link. You will see below screen, at the top you can see three links. Design link is used by developer to do define required parameters to transfer the file. Monitoring link is used to monitor the file transfer and administration link is used for administration purpose.

Click on Design link and now we define the source parameters where we place the sample file and MFT pick it from here. As mentioned earlier we are using local folder for source so we give source a name and choose “File” from drop down list. You also need to specify folder path. Read the complete article here.
