I need monitor the file changes of a folder on OS/2 system. I've been trying to use the new "WatchService" in Java 7, anyone knows how to do it?
(the "getDefaultSystem" won't work!)

Well, how exactly does it not work? You're using, what, FileSystems.getDefault()? Or something else? And does it throw an exception of some sort? Return null? Or what?

You might try calling FileSystemProvider.installedProviders() to see what it returns, and then get a FileSystem from one of the providers.
