is a project of mine mostly related to platform specific, OS X, nio.2 api’s.
It even includes FileManager itself since continuing support for that seemed questionable at one time.
I gave it a companion class FileHelper to sort of demo that these api’s could be extended.
Most of it though was exposing various OS X file api’s as nio.2 file attributes.
Didn’t succeed yet in extending it to include a native WatchService.
Having an available platform specific filesystem where you can do different things for a particular OS I thought wasn’t a bad idea.
Whether awt/desktop would be the place to implement something like that I don’t know.
