    Default Implementing timestamp listener

    Hello,
    how could a listener be implemented that is informed when an XML file has been changed? This listener then should call a function that parses the XML again.

    Default Re: Implementing timestamp listener

    A File changing is at the OS level. If you are using java 7, you can watch for directory changes

    If not, you will need to launch a thread that polls the last modified timestamp periodically, and act accordingly when it changes.
