Class Overview

The interface for channels that can write a set of buffers in a single operation. The corresponding interface for read operations is ScatteringByteChannel.

Summary

Public Methods
abstract long write(ByteBuffer[] buffers, int offset, int length)
Attempts to write all remaining() bytes from length byte buffers, in order, starting at buffers[offset].
abstract long write(ByteBuffer[] buffers)
Writes bytes from all the given buffers to a channel.

Public Methods

public abstract long write (ByteBuffer[] buffers, int offset, int length)

Added in API level 1

Attempts to write all remaining() bytes from length byte buffers, in order, starting at buffers[offset]. The number of bytes actually written is returned.

If a write operation is in progress, subsequent threads will block until the write is completed and then contend for the ability to write.

Parameters
buffers ByteBuffer: the array of byte buffers that is the source for bytes written to the channel.
offset int: the index of the first buffer in buffers to get bytes from.
length int: the number of buffers to get bytes from.
Returns
long the number of bytes actually written.
Throws
AsynchronousCloseException if the channel is closed by another thread during this write operation.
ClosedByInterruptException if another thread interrupts the calling thread while the operation is in progress. The interrupt state of the calling thread is set and the channel is closed.
ClosedChannelException if the channel is closed.
IndexOutOfBoundsException if offset < 0 or length < 0, or if offset + length is greater than the size of buffers.
IOException if another I/O error occurs; details are in the message.
NonWritableChannelException if the channel was not opened for writing.

public abstract long write (ByteBuffer[] buffers)

Added in API level 1

Writes bytes from all the given buffers to a channel.

This method is equivalent to: write(buffers, 0, buffers.length);

Parameters
buffers ByteBuffer: the buffers containing bytes to be written.
Returns
long the number of bytes actually written.
Throws
AsynchronousCloseException if the channel is closed by another thread during this write operation.
ClosedByInterruptException if another thread interrupts the calling thread while the operation is in progress. The interrupt state of the calling thread is set and the channel is closed.
ClosedChannelException if the channel is closed.
IndexOutOfBoundsException if offset < 0 or length < 0, or if offset + length is greater than the size of buffers.
IOException if another I/O error occurs; details are in the message.
NonWritableChannelException if the channel has not been opened in a mode that permits writing.
