Class PipedChannel

All Implemented Interfaces:
BoundedChannel, Channel, Puttable, Takable

public class PipedChannel
extends SemaphoreControlledChannel

A channel based on a and Elements are serialized using ObjectInputStreams and ObjectOutputStreams upon insertion and extraction from the pipe.

IO Exceptions are transformed into Errors. This is in general not a good idea, but seems to be the most reasonable compromise for the intended usage contexts.

Status Uncertain. There are enough conceptual and implementation snags surrounding use of pipes as Channels to downplay use. However, without such bridges, people would have to duplicate code that should work the same way in both cases.
