Java: Watching a Directory for Changes


Staff member
I want to create a listener to detect directory change recursively (the main directory and its subdirectories). After a web search I found this <a href="" rel="nofollow">link</a> that explains the use of the class WatchService from the Package java.nio.file that api exactly meets my needs but unfortunately it is only available in Java 7!
Then I return to search again in order to find a <a href="" rel="nofollow">framework</a> that allows the same and is compatible java 5 and java 6 but again there was a problem, because recursion is available for Windows and my application should use Linux!!
Can you offer me a solution: another framework, a way to do..
