JAVA NIO FRAMEWORK - Introducing a High-performance I/O Framework for Java

Ronny Standtke, Ulrich Ultes-Nitsche

Abstract

A new input/output (NIO) library that provides block-oriented I/O was introduced with Java v1.4. Because of its complexity, creating network applications with the Java NIO library has been very difficult and build-in support for high-performance, distributed and parallel systems was missing. Parallel architectures are now becoming the standard in computing and Java network application programmers need a framework to build upon. In this paper, we introduce the Java NIO Framework, an extensible programming library that hides most of the NIO library details and at the same time provides support for secure and high-performance network applications. The Java NIO Framework is already used by well-known organizations, e.g. the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology, and is running successfully in a distributed computing framework that has more than 1000 nodes.
