If there are input connectors for polling websites for XML and receiving XML on a REST Endpoint, why isn't there an input connector for watching a folder for an XML file? Has anyone successfully implemented or created an input connector for this?
You can make a new connector to do what you want by combining the XML adaptor with the File transport. Look here for a start: http://server.arcgis.com/en/geoevent-extension/latest/administer/extending-the-geoevent-extension.htm
