I have a requirement to read images from External location and convert it to Byte64(Not through FIle Listener) and upload it back to other system. Has anyone have done similiar implementation earlier? I know that there is a control FilePath which takes care of this when we try to upload manually through Browse. I am looking for similar kind of implementation to read the image and convert it to Byte64.
We don't want to process it with File Listerner because we need to process an other file in this location, before we process the images.
I've never done this, so there may be a better way, but I'd start by tracing the control that you referenced to see how it's done. I assume there's probably some Java code. You can find instructions online to write your own and stick it into a java step if the code the control uses isn't applicable for some reason.
