He's not actually editing the file, correct? Why not use tail -f?

I had some good news today that my boss is very pleased with his first
in Linux with only the one gripe: gedit doesn't refresh an open file
it has been modified externally.
I've done a bit of investigation work and it seems that it does refresh:
If I create a file in gedit, save it, open a console and `echo
myGeditFile` all works sweetly.
The case where it doesn't is when:
nohup java -jar longRunningApp.jar > longRunningAppOutput
The output file grows quite large over the period of a few hours but the
only way of viewing the updates is to close the file in gedit and open
again. Has anyone had similar experiences? I'm running 2.30.3.
