Windchill 10.1 Java / Workflow / LoadFromFile

The other day I figured out how to run the LoadFromFile command from inside a workflow using a robot expression.  This opens a lot of doors for bulk data loading.  The LoadFromFile class has a static method called doFileImport which can be called directly from a workflow expression as long as the XML and content files if any our on the server.  One could could use the workflow engine to create periodic bulk loads or a listener service to see when new files are available.  If you are using any sort of third party authentication or authorization then using a workflow versus the command line will likely be helpful.
