I only read this in passing, so if there's a lot of discussion of this
elsewhere, I'd be happy to get a reference, but...

java.io.File.createNewFile() claims to provide atomic file creation, and
java.nio.channels.FileLock presumably has file-locking capabilities.

Is this just something that can't be attained through a pure-Java
library, and writing native code for all possible environments isn't
your idea of a good time? :) Or, am I misunderstanding the problem.

Thanks,
