    It uses the Java7 API, but works on Java 5 and 6. This is not only a great idea, but the implementation works like a charm! Thank you Uwe!

    I like this project and could test it on Windows and Mac OS without any complications. Good work, Uwe! It's interesting that depending on the OS for each file put in the watching queue you get different number of MODIFY Events, e.g. on Mac OS I get 1 and on Windows XP I get 3. However as Uwe told me you can never rely on these numbers. Ralf
