Ruminating on Netty Performance

Recently we had again used Netty for building a Event Server from grounds-up and we were amazed at the performance of this amazing library. The secret sauce of Netty is ofcourse the implementation of the Reactor Pattern using Java NIO. More information about the Reactive design paradigm can be found @ http://www.reactivemanifesto.org/

The following links bear testimony to the extreme performance of Netty.
