Windows listening on directory on unix or windows
I am using a DefaultFileMonitor within a FileListener to listen on a directory. I get different behavior when I set the monitor delay to 0 and non zero. When I set it to 0 and add files to the directory, the createfile event is triggered, I move the files out of the directory. If I add the same files back into the directory, the create event is again triggered.
If I set the delay to 60000, the first time the files are added the event is triggered, I move the files out of the directory. When I add the files back into the directory, the create event does not trigger (i.e. it triggers the first time, but only the first time).
The only difference between the situations is 1 has delay set to 60000, the other sets it to 0 ( and I see in the code that that causes a delay of 1000).
Here is a snippet of the pertinent code. Thanks for any information/assistance you can find time to give.
public FileMessageListener(String dataArea, ReceiverDetail receiverRecord,
FileObject fileDirectoryObject, FileObject errorDirectoryObject,
FileObject processedDirectoryObject, long FileAccessCheckTime) throws Exception
this.dataArea = dataArea;
this.channel = receiverRecord.getKey().channel;
this.receiver = receiverRecord.getKey().receiver;
this.processDefinition = receiverRecord.processDefinition;
this.sendFileData = receiverRecord.filereceiverSendFileData;
this.fileDirectoryObject = fileDirectoryObject;
this.errorDirectoryObject = errorDirectoryObject;
this.processedDirectoryObject = processedDirectoryObject;
this.caseinsensitive = (System.getProperty("os.name").indexOf("Windows") >= 0);
this.regexString = getRegexString(receiverRecord.filereceiverFileName);
this.fileMonitor = new DefaultFileMonitor(this);
this.fileMonitor.setDelay(1000 * 60 * FileAccessCheckTime);
// Recursive needs to be set before files are added to the monitor.
