The Watch Doc service can be used to upload (large) text files into a mirror table. It uploads through an http(s) web request.

ServerJS parses the file and executes insert SQL statements

By following the tutorial, you will be able to import 50.000 contacts/records in a mirror table in less than 3 minutes.

The Watch Doc was not really intended for this, very inventive :).
The nice thing is that you can drop a file and the data gets loaded into the mirror table.

Of course it's not intended for this, but we have to be creative. The movement to the cloud requires creative solutions.

I hope that this "idea" is soon going to be deprecated by superior alternatives. A weak point is the error handling.
