Subject [jira] [Created] (DEFT-185) Use FileChannel.transferTo() instead of MappedByteBuffer
Date Sun, 11 Sep 2011 09:43:08 GMT
Use FileChannel.transferTo() instead of MappedByteBuffer

                 Key: DEFT-185
             Project: Deft
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 0.4.0
            Reporter: Séven Le Mesle
            Assignee: Séven Le Mesle
             Fix For: 0.4.0

Using a MappedByteBuffer to deliver static content is not good as we can not use kernel sendFile
directive when available.
The FileChannel.transferTo() allows for such a feature and would be far better. Even notice
that MappedByteBuffer is memory consuming, with transferTo() on his side is light and efficient
(no buffers involved for many OS). 
The only backside is that we need to take great care of the opened files !
Work would be to replace MBB stuff with the transferTo call and store a FileInputStream as
key attachment, the underlying FileChannel can be used to maintain position.
