Known Indirect Subclasses
Channels that implement this interface can be asynchronously closed and interrupted.
A channel that can be asynchronously closed permits that a thread blocked on
an I/O operation (the I/O thread) can be released by another thread calling
close() method. The I/O thread will throw an
AsynchronousCloseException and the channel will be closed.
A channel that is interruptible permits a thread blocked on an I/O operation
(the I/O thread) to be interrupted by another thread (by invoking
interrupt() on the I/O thread). When the I/O thread is
interrupted it will throw a
ClosedByInterruptException, it will have
its interrupted status set and the channel will be closed. If the I/O thread
attempts to make an I/O call with the interrupt status set the call will
immediately fail with a
Closes the channel.
