Subject Re: jclouds and JDK7 NIO.2 FileSystemProvider
Date Tue, 13 Aug 2013 17:05:00 GMT
I haven't tried the JDK6-based FileSystemProvider.  I didn't know it
was available, actually.  Is there documentation?

Sure, I can take a look to see what implementing a JDK7 FileProvider
would entail if others are also interested.
