    Default Disk File System Access and Monitoring

    Is it possible to access the complete file system and monitoring by any of java APIs?? Please collect possible information and put together covering this important aspect of a system.

    As the following resource mentions, it is not possible to do that for all file system and without polling in Java in a platform independent way. But you can use JNI to access native file system with the help of OS functions.

    And if you want to use polling-specific files/directories way, the API class to use is mainly File.
