File channels are very useful when messages are delivered to the system as files in a directory. The file channel will read the file from
the directory and add it to the Server database as a new record. This way you can fire a trigger on an incoming text file.
The File channel listens to filesystem events so new files are processed immediately.
After the incoming Message is created and ready to be processed by a Trigger. The file is deleted from the filesystem.
This channel supports Unicode files if they are encoded as UCS-2 Little-Endian which is the default for windows applications.
