Okay I think I finally might have found a Linux way for
creating temp RAM files. Its described in this article.

http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-fs3.html

Can somebody tell me how cross platform this technique could be ?
It involves the use of the unmount, mount commands.

Thanks

Jay

Tmpfs is probably the best RAM disk-like system available for Linux right now, and is a new feature of kernel 2.4.


The above says it all. Its not even "cross-platform" within Linux versions. And I dont think this is related to Java by any means...
