Watch 4 Folder 2.5 - a folder monitoring and automation utility that can monitor up to 4 different folders simultaneously for 12 kinds of events and react for each event with different kind of actions.

It can also react for each event with different kind of actions like writing to a log file, display different kind of messages or executing a program, batch or script.

W4F can also return the changed object (file, folder, etc.) as an argument to the executed program batch or script so you can predefine automation process for this object, for example you can monitor a folder for new files and when a new file is created you can print the new file or move the file to a different location, open it with a program you want or any other manipulation you need.

The program maintains a live log that logs every event, action or settings changes.
W4F can run in the background from the system tray and use minimum resources and can auto start with different configurations using command line parameters.

W4F 2.5 versions differences:
Free version – this version is limited to a single folder monitoring, which means you can monitor only one folder at a time, this version if free to download and use with no other limitations.
The free version is distributed as installation package, after the installation process, the program is portable and can be moved and executed from a different location or different computer.

I want to execute a java class whenever a new file is added to a folder. But i see that i can only add an .exe file to the W4F program. Hence, i would like to know if this program is suitable for my needs.

Thanks a lot.

You can select also a batch file or VB script.
Just change the file type filter on the executable selection dialog.
So you can execute the java class from a batch file.
