      Description

      InterruptedIOException has proven both problematic to implement and difficult
      to use. Among Sun's Java implementations, only the Solaris version has
      implemented the throwing of this exception when a thread blocked in an I/O
      operation is interrupted via the Thread.interrupt() method. It is very
      difficult, if not impossible, to implement this functionality on Win32 (see,
      e.g., 4154947) and on some other Unix variants. InterruptedIOException should
      therefore not be a required part of the J2SE platform specification, and the
      relevant Javadoc should be updated to reflect this.
