How do I code a file/folder/DB "change detection" monitor in a J2EE application?
Posted on 2004-08-17
I must program an application system containing workflows that will require "change detector" triggers in order to set workflow events in motion, so I must create monitors that will keep watch for changes in files, folder contents, and database tables.
This system is part of a J2EE commercial application.
I've never done this kind of "change detection" monitor. Can someone describe how to approach it, or point me toward a tutorial or resource that would shed some light?
