Hi again Christopher !
I guess you have been busy in some way or another, but can not help but
mail you again, and hear how work is going in getting the prototype
implementation available !? :-)
With kind regards

Solaris has included support for SCTP since Solaris 10. The Linux 2.6
kernel has SCTP support built in, but to you need an extra library to
access user level SCTP socket extension functions. I have seen reference
to a third party windows SCTP implementation, but have no experience
with it and its name eludes me now.
Within the scope of this SCTP OpenJDK project I plan to develop a
prototype implementation for Solaris and Linux (using the lksctp
implementation). Of course, if someone wants to contribute a Windows
implementation then I am certainly not opposed to that.
The proposed draft API defines three new channel types, SctpChannel,
SctpServerChannel and SctpMutliChannel, all of which have static factory
open methods. These methods are specified to throw
UnsupportedOperationException if the SCTP protocol is not supported.
I have a prototype implementation for both Solaris and Linux that I hope
to be able to push the source soon. Would be be interested in using
this? What SCTP implementation are you currently using?
