Listen to the file system events with JxFileWatcher

A new product called JxFileWatcher is coming soon.

JxFileWatcher is a cross-platform library providing API to listen to file system events and monitor changes inside specified folders.

Using JxFileWatcher you will be able to track all kinds of changes made to specified folders:
  • Creation, renaming or removal of files and subfolders
  • File size or contents change
  • Attributes modifications
Initial release will support Windows, Linux and Mac OS X and will be available early in May.

JxFileWatcher will support two modes with and without administrative privileges. For users without administrative privileges the operating system sets limitation on the number of descriptors opened on *nix platforms (Linux, Mac OS X). Administrative mode removes such limitations.
