public interface WritableByteChannel
* Writes a sequence of bytes to this channel from the given buffer.
* <p> An attempt is made to write up to <i>r</i> bytes to the channel,
* where <i>r</i> is the number of bytes remaining in the buffer, that is,
* <tt>src.remaining()</tt>, at the moment this method is invoked.
* <p> Suppose that a byte sequence of length <i>n</i> is written, where
* <tt>0</tt> <tt><=</tt> <i>n</i> <tt><=</tt> <i>r</i>.
* This byte sequence will be transferred from the buffer starting at index
* <i>p</i>, where <i>p</i> is the buffer's position at the moment this
* method is invoked; the index of the last byte written will be
* <i>p</i> <tt>+</tt> <i>n</i> <tt>-</tt> <tt>1</tt>.
* Upon return the buffer's position will be equal to
* <i>p</i> <tt>+</tt> <i>n</i>; its limit will not have changed.
* <p> Unless otherwise specified, a write operation will return only after
* writing all of the <i>r</i> requested bytes. Some types of channels,
* depending upon their state, may write only some of the bytes or possibly
* none at all. A socket channel in non-blocking mode, for example, cannot
* write any more bytes than are free in the socket's output buffer.
* <p> This method may be invoked at any time. If another thread has
* already initiated a write operation upon this channel, however, then an
* invocation of this method will block until the first operation is
* complete. </p>
