Universal File Mover is an application to manage the transfer of files. It allows the user to combine business processes into a workflow. A workflow describes the tasks, procedural steps, people involved, required input and output information, and tools required for each step in the business process. The user creates a UFM Workflow XML, which details the sequence of concatenated steps in a business process, by combining a series of action commands. These action commands define which actions are to be taken, the order of the actions, and how errors are to be handled. UFM processes the Action commands as per the UFM Workflow XML file. Action commands fall into 5 categories: WebSphere MQ Actions, Network Actions, File Actions, Control Actions, and Other Actions. UFM can transfer files in 1 of 5 ways: WebSphere MQ, FTP, SFTP, SCP, and HTTP. UFM's MQSend Action sends a file via MQ and has capability to encrypt the data using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to compress the data before it is sent.
