A temporary directory where uncompressed and compressed data can be stored.
This property indicates a temporary directory where the pipeline component can store any data before the pipeline component processes it. If TempPath is empty, the pipeline component will receive all data to memory. If set, the pipeline component will generate and write all inbound data to a temporary file in the specified directory.
Once the file is submitted to BizTalk, the pipeline component will handle closing the file stream and deleting the temporary file. However, if the pipeline component is shut down during a transfer some temporary files may be left in the directory. To ensure optimal performance, server administrators should check the directory regularly and remove old or extraneous files.
This property accepts the "%TEMP%" macro, which will be replaced with the default system temporary directory at runtime.
Note: by default, this property is empty and the pipeline component will use memory streams to store all inbound data before submitting it to BizTalk. It is recommended that you use a temporary directory when downloading large batches or batches containing large files to alleviate potential increased memory requirements.
