Greg Wilkins gave the following session at JavaOne 2014 about Servlet 3.1 Async I/O.
It’s a great talk in many ways.
You get to know from an insider of the Servlet Expert Group about the design of the Servlet 3.1 Async I/O APIs.
You get to know from the person the created, developed Jetty and implemented Servlet specifications for 19 years what are the gotchas of these new APIs.
You get to know many great insights on how to write correct asynchronous code, and believe it – it’s not as straightforward as you think !
You get to know that Jetty 9 supports Servlet 3.1 and you should start using it today 🙂
