- All Known Implementing Classes:
public interface InterruptibleChannel extends ChannelA 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
closemethod. This will cause the blocked thread to receive an
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
interruptmethod. 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
ClosedByInterruptException; its 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
void close() throws IOExceptionCloses this channel.
Any thread currently blocked in an I/O operation upon this channel will receive an
