Directory Watcher
Event notification for file system changes.

The directory watcher operates by scanning a directory at some interval and generating a list of files based on a user supplied glob pattern. As the file list changes from one interval to the next, events are generated and dispatched to registered observers. Three types of events are supported ââ¬â added, modified, and removed.
