I am missing a description how to access files on the File-Systems.
What do you have to do if you want to integrate a non-sca-system, that writes files in a dedicated directory and expects the result in another directory.

Re: File Connector in Tuscany
There isn't any special support in SCA or Tuscany for this. You could write a component implementation using any of the supported implementation types (for example, implementation.java) and write code within the component implementation to read or write these files. Alternatively it would be possible to create a new implementation type for this specific purpose (see chapter 14 for information about how you could do this) but I'm not sure whether the benefit of doing this extra work would be worth the effort.
