I am discovering NIO and your potential but while I understood well improovment about NET (socket asynch) communication , I haven't understand the real advantages to use NIo instead normal stream because it's clear that NIO File channel can't be unblocked,in other words it can't use the asynchronous operation,

then it is as old stream .

It is true ? and if it is , why ?
