We require a simple C++ application that will monitor a folder for files, read each file and insert its' content to a DB with the filename. After inserting the file to the DB, the file should be deleted from the folder.
The application must be VERY fast, as it's expected to handle 50 files/sec.
Database fields: id, content, timestamp
Filename example: [url removed, login to view]
id- abcdefg (no .xml!)
content- hello world!
timestamp- (the creation time of the file, not the insert time)
The program should sleep for 500ms if there are no files to handle.
Input folder name and connection string to the DB should be taken from dedicated environment variables (INPUT_FOLDER, DB_CONNECTION).
In case there's no connection to the DB, the files should be moved to a "failed" directory under the input folder.
Sorry for writing such a long spec, but I believe that now there is very little room for misunderstandings and it's better for everyone.
