IPC sockets^memory mapped files

Unix domain socket is also known as IPC socket.

Requirement — Large volume data sharing across jvm and other unix processes.

  1. sockets are well supported in java, c, perl, python but still requires copying lots of data. I think only the unix domain socket is relevant here, not inet sockets.
  2. memory mapped files as a RandomAccessFile and MappedByteBuffer? Pure java solution — No JNI needed. I feel not so “popular”. c# and c++ also support it.
