file monitor
Geosoft’s FileMonitor and FileListener monitor specified files or directories in a file system. They come as Java jars. The monitor uses polling with at a specified polling interval, and report creation, changes and deletion through the listening interface.

Ideally, you would like to avoid polling and have instant notification of changes. To do this would require OS-specific JNI (Java Native Interface) code to hook into the native file system. This would also require high privilege.
