Watch for creation, renaming or removal of files and subfolders within any specified folder.
JxFileWatcher supports different file system types and always uses the best algorithm for monitoring file system events in a specified watching directory.
You will be able to receive notifications about events when access or modification date is changed.
You can watch for all file events or just for specified by the event and file filters. The files can be watched inside the selected folder only or including all its subfolders.
Be notified about any changes to file size and attributes. These are System, Hidden, Read only and Archived attributes for Windows platforms, and Read, Write and Execute attributes for Linux and Mac systems.
Java applications which need to monitor folders. For example, a media management application that should be notified when user adds a new media file to a watched folder.
