Apache Commons IO File Monitoring Example

Here is another example from the archives of the mythical archana on File monitoring using Apache Commons I/O for file monitoring. I remember working on this to see if we could come up with a solution since we could not upgrade the application to Java SE 7. So this proof of concept was to try out a couple of different file monitoring options.

This example uses a FileAlterationListener to monitor file changes. It is simple to implement.

The code for the project can be found here: file-monitor
