Onion Networks has released AntFlow, an open source (Apache license) "hotfolder driven workflow and automation technology based on Apache Ant." According to the announcement, "Using XML, AntFlow associates an automated task, such as data transfer, encryption, or XML processing with a directory on the local system. Whenever a file is copied or written into the hot folder, the associated task is executed and the file is moved to the next hot folder in the pipeline for further processing."
