Class Association

java.lang.Object
com.sun.nio.sctp.Association

public class Association extends Object
A class that represents an SCTP association.

An association exists between two SCTP endpoints. Each endpoint is represented by a list of transport addresses through which that endpoint can be reached and from which it will originate SCTP messages. The association spans over all of the possible source/destination combinations which may be generated from each endpoint's lists of addresses.

Associations are identified by their Association ID. Association ID's are guaranteed to be unique for the lifetime of the association. An association ID may be reused after the association has been shutdown. An association ID is not unique across multiple SCTP channels. An Association's local and remote addresses may change if the SCTP implementation supports Dynamic Address Reconfiguration as defined by RFC5061, see the bindAddress and unbindAddress methods of SctpChannel, SctpServerChannel, and SctpMultiChannel.

An Association is returned from an SctpChannel or an SctpMultiChannel, as well as being given as a parameter to NotificationHandler methods.
