Quick question... can a server written using the new java io (NIO) SocketChannel/Selector/ect classes talk to a client that is not written in java, which does not have any non blocking io support?
I assume the answer is yes, because a socket is a socket no matter where you are, but it would be great to get a little reassurance before I start writting my server
Thanks so much!

Hear ye, hear ye: A socket is a socket is a socket, regardless of how you interface with that socket
