Subject Re: [pre-proposal] AsyncWeb
Date Wed, 12 Jul 2006 15:24:45 GMT
You might also want to CC Filip Hanik,, on this
idea.  Filip has been busily working on a NIO HTTP implementation for
Tomcat, and has a working version.  We've seen some quirky performance
out of it.  But that's besides the point: I think he might be
interested in this, at least as an observer, besides having some
practical tips and possibly code to share.
