- Full Description
Pro Java 7 NIO.2 addresses the three primary elements that offer new input/output (I/O) APIs in Java 7, giving you the skills to write robust, scalable Java applications:
- An extensive file I/O API system addresses feature requests that developers have sought since the inception of the JDK
- A socket channel API addresses multicasting, socket binding associated with channels, and related issues
- An asynchronous I/O API enables mapping to I/O facilities, completion ports, and various I/O event port mechanisms to enhance scalability
NIO.2 for the Java platform, known as JSR 203, is a major feature of the new Java JDK 7 under the leadership of Alan Bateman as an OpenJDK project. Take advantage of these exciting new developments with Pro Java 7 NIO.2.

Paragraph # 2 has the wrong import statement. It should be java.nio.file.Files.isSameFile(). file should be lower case instead of upper case.
On page 36:
mklink /D C:\rafaelnadal C:\rafaelnadal\photos
ln –s /home/rafaelnadal/photos /home/rafaelnadal
It does not work. It make a circulation in directories.
When you execute "cd photo", it is recurring.
