Description
A new filesystem interface that supports bulk access to file attributes
(including MIME content types), escape to filesystem-specific APIs, and a
service-provider interface for pluggable filesystem implementations.  This
API will work more consistently across platforms, will make it easier to
write programs that gracefully handle the failure of filesystem operations,
will provide more efficient access to a larger set of file attributes, will
allow developers of sophisticated applications to take advantage of
platform-specific features when absolutely necessary, and will allow
support for non-native filesystems, such as network filesystems, to be
"plugged in" to the platform.

EVALUATION

(updated Feb 10, 2006)

JSR-203 (http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=203) is currently working on a new file system interface that will address the items listed in the description of this bug. Our goal with this JSR is to deliver in good time to be included in Dolphin (Java SE 7) - this assumes of course that it will be approved as a component JSR in Dolphin.
