This is interesting, but a bit tricky. so, each time a new file is picked up, you want to truncate the database table?

I'd create two channels. Channel A picks up and reads in the entire content of the file, and re-routes it to another Channel B that processes the batch. You'll create a step in the Channel A that truncates the database table before the batch data is sent to Channel B.

That's just how I'd do it. Someone else may have a completely different approach.
