Writing scalable server applications in the Java™ programming language has always been difficult. Before the advent of the Java New I/O API (NIO), thread management issues made it impossible for a server to scale to thousands of users. The Eclipse Grizzly NIO framework has been designed to help developers to take advantage of the Java™ NIO API.
Our hope is to help developers to build scalable and robust servers using NIO and we are also offering extended framework components such as:
HTTP Protocol framework for creating custom HTTP applications
HTTP Server framework which offers high level abstractions to the HTTP protocol (not unlike Servlets)
