Just an update to say that the experimental Jetty is continuing
to progress well.
The code that is checked into CVS now implements the core parts of
HTTP/1.1 in a 68K jar file that is going to be VERY FAST.
It's API is still very low level and needs some more conveniance
classes - but it is approaching usability for very embedded environments
that want a small foot print - or very fast environments that want a
closely coupled HTTP stack.
The io layer is currently written against streams, but it has been
designed to at least be able to use NIO direct buffers and
eventually will work well with non-blocking channels.
So if you are interested in the HTTP level and don't give a
rats arse about servlets - then now would be a good time to start
looking at JettyExperimental in CVS.
