I have to rite a service thread that ill alays be running when resin is running. It will keep a look in a predefined folder and keep checking for new XML file in the folder. As soon as new XML arrives in the folder the service thread should launch a new thread and pass that xml file to a web application.

Please help me. Its very urgent. My entire project depends on this feature.

You should start a Timer/TimerTask upon web app loading that periodically checks whether any files have arrived. Look into web app context listeners to do that. I don't think anything Resin-specific needs to be done for this.
I agree. Here's the link:
