problem with file exist in the network filesystem extension

problem with file exist in the network filesystem extension

  
Hi All,

In our application we have a process in which we do offline processing of excel file files. To check if the file is processed we use the file exist methode in a loop. Most of the times this works fine but in some occasions the network connect stall's / hik up's/ is down for a second and the whole activity stops. When the activity is started again the file exist keeps given errors.
When a new activity is started process works like a charm.

The question is how to handle network hikup's because the file exist crashes down on us. Hope you have a suggestion.

regards

Stephan Schevers
