New article: file system notifications

A new article has been added on file system notifications. The article explains how your Java app can ask the underlying O/S to be notified of modifications to files in particular directories, e.g. for monitoring log files, watching for files created by an external process, or files opened by your application.

The article also looks at some of the limitations and pitfalls of using Java's WatchService API.
