      I have a directory that I want to monitor and whenever files in it are modified I want to trigger biztalk to pick up that file and start an orchestration.

      The File adapter seems to rely on files being dropped on a location. Can this be configured to monitor changes instead?

      I’m new to biztalk so this question may seem odd and perhaps a very bad idea. I know that I can write my own module in .net and use FileSystemWatcher class to accomplish this task. However, I wonder if it can be done out-of-the-box in biztalk?

      The built-in FILE adapter does not do this; it only monitors the directory for new files and then once they are processed they will usually be removed.

      You could do this by writing your own custom adapter; there’s a sample File adapter included in the BizTalk SDK you can use as a start.
