  • Files are periodically imported by crontab task to some OpenKM folder ( /okm:root/Scans )

String token = DbSessionManager.getInstance().getSystemToken();
OKMDocument document = OKMDocument.getInstance();
OKMFolder folder = OKMFolder.getInstance();
 
public void autoImport(String okmPath, File fldpath){
  try {
    print("Scanning " + fldpath.getName() + "<br>");
    for (File file : fldpath.listFiles()) {
      print("Importing " + file.getName() + "<br>");
	try {
	  if (file.isDirectory()) {
	    try {
	      folder.createSimple(token, okmPath + file.getName());
	    } catch (ItemExistsException ie) {
	      print("folder already exists<br>");
	      // Folder already exists - just ignore exception
	    }

	  } else {

	    long length = file.length();
	    Thread.sleep(1000);
