Projects / nioReactor


nioReactor is a framework for quickly building scalable event-driven network applications. It is built on top of the Reactor design pattern using NIO sockets. This provides high performance and allows for a complete separation from the application specific code. The goal of the project is to provide a simple set of APIs that allow users to build scalable servers without needing to deal with with the cumbersome and sometimes temperamental peaces of the NIO package.
