Is it allowed to use java.nio.ByteBuffer? Did anyone who passed use it?

The Oracle webpage says that you have to use Standard file IO (java.io, not java.nio), and it also says NIO, the New IO facilities cannot be used.

But I am not using ByteBuffer for file I/O operations, I even wonder why is ByteBuffer in NIO package. I want to use it to buffer data before writing to database file.

I just used a byte[] to write everything to file, using a RandomAccessFile

Well champ, I'd say that, for whatever you are using it, you are not allowed to do so.

Thanks for the answers!

I used byte[], Strinng.getBytes(), System.arraycopy() and Arrays.fill()
