Re: XML file contains filename to be moved (with itself).. what packages should I use?

OK.. not hearing any pre-build advise.. I started building.
I can successfully extract the XML field value that is the name of the work file out of the consumed file of the route.
What I need to do is only move both (the file I'm consuming and it's work file).. if the work file shows up..

Here's what I got so far....

package org.mainegeneral.camel;
import org.apache.camel.Processor;
import org.apache.camel.Exchange;
import org.apache.camel.builder.RouteBuilder;
public class MyRouteBuilder extends RouteBuilder {
    public void configure() {
        .setProperty("SourceFN").xpath("/SYSTEMJOB/WORKDETAIL/SOURCE_FILENAME", String.class)
        .process(new Processor() {
                     public void process(Exchange exchange) throws Exception {
          } )
        .log("Reading XML file: ${header.CamelFileName}")
        .log("XML Source Filename = ${property.SourceFN}")

Now I will need to not move the XML I'm consuming if the file named in SOURCE_FILENAME doesn't yet exist, and go on to the other XML files in the directory and come back to check this one.  
I was going to use a choice to perform both those moves in.. but struggling to check for the named SOURCE_FILENAME's existance.

Figured I'd try something new and ask for advice here first before hitting a brick wall and asking after I hit that dead end...I need to poll for XML files dumping into a specific NFS directory, read in the XML, find the "work" file generated by the task that generated the XML, and move both files together.  The XML file is a custom small app specific job detail sort of file, with the exported work contained in a file named between the <SOURCE_FILENAME> tag.I could just regex the file, instead of parsing XML "officially", then use a choice and when satisfied, move both the file I'm reading, and the result from the regex.  I don't really need the 50 or so other job statistic tags contained in the XML.  I plan to use Java DSL with a blueprint or some Karaf supported type to run as a bundle. 
Since these xml files are generated at invocation, the "work" file might not show up for a few minutes.  In that time, I'm hoping to round-robin any other XML files to find completed "pairs" in this landing directory. Sound simple enough?  Any gotchas that people can think of?
