I have recently presented “HTTP/2 and Java: Current Status” at a few conferences (slides below). HTTP/2 and Java: Current Status from Simone Bordet The HTTP/2 protocol has two big benefits over HTTP/1.1: Multiplexing and HTTP/2 Push. The first feature, Multiplexing,
The auto discovery features of the Servlet specification can make deployments slow and uncertain. Working in collaboration with Google AppEngine, the Jetty team has developed the Jetty quick start mechanism that allows rapid and consistent starting of a Servlet server.
While Jetty has internally used asynchronous IO since 7.0, Servlet 3.1 has added asynchronous IO to the application API and Jetty-9.1 now supports asynchronous IO in an unbroken chain from application to socket. Asynchronous APIs can often look intuitively simple,
After having some discussions on spdy-dev and having some experience with our current push implementation, we’ve decided to change a few things to the better. Jetty now sends all push resources non interleaved to the client. That means that the
We have SPDY to SPDY and HTTP to SPDY proxy functionality implemented in Jetty for a while now. An important and very common use case however is a SPDY to HTTP proxy. Imagine a network architecture where network components like
This blog is an update for jetty-9 of one published for Jetty 7 in 2008 as an example web application that uses Jetty asynchronous HTTP client and the asynchronoous servlets 3.0 API, to call an eBay restful web service. The
Having discussed the business case for Jetty 9 and SPDY, this blog presents a simple tutorial for runing PHP web applications like WordPress on Jetty with SPDY. Get Jetty First you’ll need a distribution of Jetty, which you can download,
So you are not Google! Your website is only taking a few 10’s or maybe 100’s of requests a second and your current server is handling it without a blip. So you think you don’t need a faster server and
Jetty 9.1.0 has entered round 8 of the Techempower’s Web Framework Benchmarks. These benchmarks are a comparison of over 80 framework & server stacks in a variety of load tests. I’m the first one to complain about unrealistic benchmarks when
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.
