Description
From http://java.net/jira/browse/MACOSX_PORT-167 --

JDK 1.7 provides the option to get various meta data via the Files.readAttributes() and Files.getFileAttributeView() methods. It would be nice to have a way of accessing the MacOS X meta data.

One scenario, is when Safari saves a file it indicates where it was retrieved from. It would be useful in certain scenarios to be able to read that data.

Related to: http://java.net/jira/browse/MACOSX_PORT-133, 
whose Bugster eqivalent is: CR 7133476

                                    

Comments
Move the enhancement to Plan project for JDK9.
