File Listener after upgrade from Pega 6.2 to 7.3 is not placing file in the work_listenername directory
We have upgraded the Pega application from 6.2 to 7.3 Post upgrade we are noticing that the file listener is behaving in a different way in v7. In v7 after the listener wakes up it is keeping the file in the same path while it is processing and finally moving it to /work_listenername/completed folder. Whereas in v6 the listener after it wakes up deleting the file from the source path, renaming it with a 16 digit number and placing it in the /work_listenername folder.Finally after processing the file is moved to the completed folder. Is there any change to the internal processing logic of File Listener in v7.3 is what we are wondering ? Please respond if anyone faced the same issue in their project.

Yes the internal code of File listener is changed hence only the behaviour of processing the file at source location. This change is from PRPC 7.2.2 before versions all report as mentioned in V6. Other than this behaviour are you facing any issues in the file processing?
Thanks Shanthini. This explains the behavior we are observing in v7.3. So if the file is getting processed at the source location itself, will the listener that first picks the file for processing hold the lock on the file while it is being processed so that other listeners running on different nodes for a multi-node environment do not process the same file. Could you please share some insight into this as well.
