Subject Re: [MINA] Question regarding application built using MINA
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2006 11:40:49 GMT

What mail-trail are you referring to?

No, you won't have to bother about calls when using 
MINA. In fact, there's no way you could get hold of the selector(s) 
used. Using MINA you focus on the implementation of your protocol using 
filters and codecs. MINA will take care of the lower level NIO stuff.
