Non-Exit Application

Hi
I have an application with imports text file to SQL Server, where the text files will be uploaded to a particular folder.(it may be empty without text file also).

Now, my application searches this folder and converts text file to SQL Server Rows if text file exists Or else it keeps searching the folder.

Iam maintaning a log file for errors, where i come to know what happened and when @ what time.

The problem is my application EXIT... I dont want my application to EXIT, it must run 24/7.

Please suggest some idea and a piece of code coz am little new to VC++, so that i can handle this.

regards

You can create a thread where you do your search stuff, in an 'infinite' loop that will stop on an external event. Like you have a bool value that you set it when the wile loop wants to be finished. This bool val can be set from outside the thread (e.g. whe someone push a 'stop' button).

while(1)
{
  if(bExit)
    break;
 
  //process your search

  Sleep(1);
}
