Does anyone of you know an effective way of how to watch a directory for changes (new file created, file modified, ...)?
The new JDK 7 offers the java.nio.file.ServiceWatcher which will do this job, but till now I do not know a smooth way doing this.
Hope for cool ideas...
If you don't need
real-time: create a simple Quartz job which scans the directory and checks for changes with the different File methods.
