I am using NIO, channels, byte buffers, slices, etc. in my data access class.
Is there any reason that NIO would be unacceptable?


Thanks

Does this take precedence over the "assignment" directions?
(no nio?...)

I just read from web: Sun Certified Developer web page

Wow, is this topic still popping up!?

I finished my SCJD about a year ago, and this was always a hot question then too. If you do a search on this forum for NIO you will get a lot of hits. In the past (and someone please correct me if this has changed in the last nine months), the response from Sun has been that you can use NIO as long as it does not explicitly forbid it in your instructions. The instructions you get from Sun as part of your assignment download are official, while the web site is not.

However, just to be safe... if you are planning on using NIO, you may want to email Sun and make sure.

Thanks for your reply.

I did search before and then just now - but I am getting search hits only
from ~2000 (5 years ago) and even then not really "nio" but things like "onion" (o-nio-n), etc.

I guess I have to learn how to search here more better.
(and I will look for those 9 month ago threads)

Thanks
