Music Data Parser

Executive Summary

Designed and implemented a backend script that monitors a well defined folder for media file data dumps from music. The script periodically checks the folder for a manifest file to determine the number of files to parse. Each file is an xml file and contains metadata for corresponding media files that are also dumped into this folder. The script then parses the metadata files and stores the data in relevant tables and then moves the related media files (mp3,JPEG,wmv) to a CDN server via SCP (secure copy protocol). At the end of the entire process the script generates a log file with errors and files that were processed and fires an email to a configurable mailing address with a summary of the entire ingestion process.
