Hi experts. I'm working on a code to handle files with the java file watcher. Got it working, except sometimes it's throwing on exception saying the file is in use. strangely this is always the last of the pasted files. I'm sure it is not in use..well not be me anyway.

Any ideas?

Generally, it comes when a file (a handle to a file) is in use by some other process. So, you will need to check for which file the exception is encountered and see if it used by another process.

By the way, can I ask what the file watcher do ? Any associated activity (or file processing) with file watcher ?

hi Panchal,

Thank you for your response and sorry for my late reaction. I'm using file watcher, because I want a program to watch a folder and act immediately when a file is dropped there. After picking up the file I look at the content and put it in a other folder, after some DB actions, for further handling.

I prefer not to use a cronjob to start program and handle file.

Hi,
Create a handle:
public void handle(FileSystemEvent event)

......

then get the info you need:
new Object[]{event.getFileInfo(), actionName}
