The NIO Framework sits on top of the Java NIO library and hides most of the complexity of plain NIO and SSLEngine. With it, one can easily implement secure, high-performance Java network applications.

Changes

The fixed I/O class hierarchy has been replaced by a group of flexible transformation classes which can be combined in almost arbitrary order. The Dispatcher now uses daemon threads so that applications can have a clean shutdown. The timeout handler in the Dispatcher uses weak references for better memory management. The HandlerAdapter now provides access to the channel.
