No, 1.4 java.nio (JCP JSR-51) is different. It contains similar
functionality though. Matt Welsh (who made NBIO) is on the internal
"expert group".  I am too.  The preliminary specs for nio should be
out within a month or so, and beta implementation should be out within
a few(?)  months.  You can find out a little more about it now at
