|Known Indirect Subclasses|
A channel to a network socket.
A channel that implements this interface is a channel to a network
bind method is used to bind the
socket to a local
getLocalAddress method returns the address that the socket is bound to, and
getOption methods are used to set and query socket
options. An implementation of this interface should specify the socket options
that it supports.
setOption methods that do
not otherwise have a value to return are specified to return the network
channel upon which they are invoked. This allows method invocations to be
chained. Implementations of this interface should specialize the return type
so that method invocations on the implementation class can be chained.
