Thread: Retrieve data from Carte status XML file with PDI

  1. #1

    Default Retrieve data from Carte status XML file with PDI


    I am planning to do the following:

    • Run a Carte server and several jobs and transformations on it
    • Start a job/transformation every 10 minutes via command line that checks via PDI if
      • the Carte server itself runs
      • the jobs on the server are still running

    • Restart the Carte server or the jobs if they are not running anymore

    My idea was to use the web service steps to check if the server is running, read the status XML file for the job status and then restart the jobs via shell step.

    Before I knock my head off here: is that possible at all or are there any know restrictions why this would not work?

    Thanks for any hint!

    Nobody got an idea?

    A simple 'No way' would already help

    That should work... But I don't get to play with Carte much.

    Carte runs a jetty server, so everything you propose should be achievable.
    I'm no expert.
