I'm trying to learn how to use the Sockets Direct Protocol, which is new to Java 7. I started out by going to "http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/sdp/sockets/index.html", and I read it all the way through. I didn't come away with any kind of confidence that I could write code that uses sockets, any more than I already had, using Java 6. Does anybody know any other websites that might be good for learning how to actually use the Sockets Direct Protocol by writing code in Java 7?

Well, I looked some more for information on the Sockets Direct Protocol, and found a nice website at "http://www.infoq.com/articles/Java-7-Sockets-Direct-Protocol" that seemed to indicate I have to make no changes at all to my Java code to take advantage of the protocol; I just specify whether or not I want to use the protocol on the command line. And if I do specify that I want to use it on the command line, my use of sockets goes potentially "blazingly" fast. Pretty cool.
