Description Egor Ushakov 2013-07-23 09:14:37 UTC
Currently Notifiers SPI have only one "notifying" method - nextEvent returning path to the changed folder (not file). With java 7 WatchService Notifier can provide more precise events like the exact modified/created/removed file path. 
It would be better to have extended SPI for such notifiers and use the information they provide in Watcher to avoid parent folders rescan on every file change.
