WLST script to monitor for the presence of files in a directory

It will poll every second a directory, and write to a log file the name of all the files it can find...

Very useful to monitor the behaviour of a File Adapter...

#Checks at regular intervals for the presence of a file in a Directory
import os
import datetime
import time

dirToWatch = '/data/my/directory' 
while 1 == 1 :
     files = os.listdir(dirToWatch)
     if len(files) > 0:
        logfile = open("fileslog.log", "a")
        logfile.write(str( + " " + str(files) + "\n")
