i have a scenario where i have to remove a node from my target xml file in receiver file channel and want xml as the output file. I don't want a fixed length file. How to do that in receiver channel? Do we need to use file content conversion for that?

If you want XML output, you don't need to do file content conversion.

Also to remove one tag, don't map that particular node at all..

yes you can remove a particular node - /people/sravya.talanki2/blog/2005/08/11/solution-to-the-problem-encountered-using-variable-substitution-with-xi-sp12

that will result in giving you a fixed file or a separator defined file.

it will not give you an XML file.

In case you want a XML file, instead of using variable substitution, use Dynamic configuration and adapter specific properties.

i can't use dynamic configuration because i have to create multiple directories using single file adapter that too is based source payload. so i am using variable substitution for both file name and directory.

in such a case then u might have to go for a adapter module. Dont see any other standard work arounds.

Abhimanyu,

dynamic configuration does exactly that.

It will do exactly what variable substitution does with even more flexibility regarding the filename and directory strings.

If you really have to do it in the Receiver Channel (and cannot just leave it out in the mapping), you can also implement a module that filters out the element. The module can have a parameter with the XPath or the Name of the Element you would like to filter and implement a simple SAX Parser that writes only the elements to the output that are not filtered.

However, if you can, this should be filtered out in the mapping already.
