Subject When is space allocated to a file in java?
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2005 06:09:55 GMT
As usual with these types of questions, the java documentation is

If I use RandomAccessFile to write data at the end
of a file, extending it

AND don't sync the file either on the write using one of the "rwd" modes

AND don't call sync on the file

Is it possible that a subsequent sync or subsequent write on that 
extended portion of the file will return an out of disk space error?
