public abstract boolean supportsFileAttributeView (String name)

Tells whether or not this file store supports the file attributes identified by the given file attribute view.

Invoking this method to test if the file store supports BasicFileAttributeView, identified by the name " basic" will always return true. In the case of the default provider, this method cannot guarantee to give the correct result when the file store is not a local storage device. The reasons for this are implementation specific and therefore unspecified.

Parameters:
name     the name of file attribute view

Returns:  true if, and only if, the file attribute view is supported
