Introduction One of the big refactorings in Jetty 9 is the complete rewrite of the HTTP client. The reasons behind the rewrite are many: We wrote the codebase several years ago; while we have actively maintained, it was starting to
Jetty, SPDY and HAProxy
The SPDY protocol will be the next web revolution. The HTTP-bis working group has been rechartered to use SPDY as the basis for HTTP 2.0, so network and server vendors are starting to update their offerings to include SPDY support.
SPDY Push Demo from JavaOne 2012
Simone Bordet and I spoke at JavaOne this year about the evolution of web protocol and how HTTP is being replaced by WebSocket (for new semantics) and by SPDY (for better efficiency). The demonstration of SPDY Push is particularly good
Fully functional SPDY-Proxy
We keep pushing our SPDY implementation and with the upcoming Jetty release we provide a fully functional SPDY proxy server out of the box. Simply by configuration you can setup Jetty to provide a SPDY connector where clients can connect
SPDY – non representative benchmark for plain http vs. spdy+push on webtide.com
I’ve done a quick run with the Page Benchmarker Extension on chromium to measure the difference between http and SPDY + push. Enabling benchmarks restricts chromium to SPDY draft 2 so we’ll run without flow control. Note that the website
SPDY – we push!
SPDY, Google’s web protocol, is gaining momentum. Intending to improve the user’s web experience it aims at severely reducing page load times. We’ve blogged about the protocol and jetty’s straight forward SPDY support already: Jetty-SPDY is joining the revolution! and
Jos Dirksen has written a nice blog about Jetty-SPDY, thanks Jos ! In the upcoming Jetty 7.6.3 and 8.1.3 (due in the next days), the Jetty-SPDY module has been enhanced with support for prioritized streams and for SPDY push (although
Jetty-SPDY is joining the revolution!
There is a revolution quietly happening on the web and if you blink you might miss it. The revolution is in the speed and latency with which some browsers can load some web pages, and what used to take 100’s
NoSql Sessions with Jetty7 and Jetty8
When Jetty 7.5.0 is released we will have officially started to dabble in the area of distributed session handling and storage. To start this out we have created a set of abstract classes around the general concept of NoSQL support,
Websocket Example: Server, Client and LoadTest
The websocket protocol specification is approaching final and the Jetty implementation and API have been tracking the draft and is ready when the spec and browsers are available. More over, Jetty release 7.5.0 now includes a capable websocket java
