java.nio.channels Documentation Differences

This file contains all the changes in documentation in the package java.nio.channels as colored differences. Deletions are shown like this, and additions are shown like this.
If no deletions or additions are shown in an entry, the HTML tags will be what has changed. The new HTML tags are shown in the differences. If no documentation existed, and then some was added in a later version, this change is noted in the appropriate class pages of differences, but the change is not shown on this page. Only changes in existing text are shown here. Similarly, documentation which was inherited from another class or interface is not shown here.
Note that an HTML error in the new documentation may cause the display of other documentation changes to be presented incorrectly. For instance, failure to close a <code> tag will cause all subsequent paragraphs to be displayed differently.

Class InterruptibleChannel

A channel that can be asynchronously closed and interrupted.

A channel that implements this interface is asynchronously closeable: If a thread is blocked in an I/O operation on an interruptible channel then another thread may invoke the channel's close method. This will cause the blocked thread to receive an AsynchronousCloseException

A channel that implements this interface is also interruptible: If a thread is blocked in an I/O operation on an interruptible channel then another thread may invoke the blocked thread's interrupt method. This will cause the channel to be closed the blocked thread to receive a ClosedByInterruptException and the blocked thread's interrupt status to be set.

If a thread's interrupt status is already set and it invokes a blocking I/O operation upon a channel then the channel will be closed and the thread will immediately receive a it interrupt status will remain set.

A channel supports asynchronous closing and interruption if and only if it implements this interface. This can be tested at runtime if necessary via the instanceof operator. @author Mark Reinhold @author JSR-51 Expert Group @version 1.2 013 02/1106/2811 @since 1.4
