    I want to read the content of a text file dropped in a watched folder into a string variable

    g5spark Level 1

      I have a workbench process with 2 variable.

      inDoc (DataType=Document/input/required)

      outStr (DataType = String/output)


      The document being passed to the workflow is a text file with 4 lines of text in it.  when the text file is dropped into the watched folder, it will be assigned to the inDoc parameter in the workflow.

      My workflow needs to extract the 4 lines of text and write it into a string (outStr).

       

      Id like to use the FileUtilsService.ReadString service but i can't since its input parameter is the file path.  When i do, i get the following error...

      which is what i expected...

       

       

      I've also tried with the Script.executeScript to call some java code but im not too strong in java and in all the examples i find, the file pointer requires a file path.

       

      import java.io.*;

      FileInputStream f = new FileInputStream(patExecContext.getProcessDataValue("/process_data/inDoc"));

       

      OR

       

      File f = new File(patExecContext.getProcessDataValue("/process_data/inDoc"));

       

      OR

       

      File f = patExecContext.getProcessDataValue("/process_data/inDoc");

       

       

      Any clue how to resolve my problem?
