This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
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)
