    Netty 3.1.0.GA, the first major stable release of 3.1 branch, has been released. A lot of effort has been put into this release for more than a half year since the previous GA version was released. The Netty project is an effort to provide an asynchronous, event-driven network application framework and tools for rapid development of maintainable, high-performance, high-scalability protocol servers and clients. In other words, Netty is a NIO client server framework that enables quick and easy development of network applications such as protocol servers and clients. It simplifies and streamlines network programming such as TCP and UDP socket servers. Success Stories: Several community members shared his and her success stories with Netty since its beginning, and their stories were published to the official web site today. Check out the testimonials and performance stories from real users. Changes Since 3.0: There were numberless improvements in features, performance, and API usability. The following is the list of the most noteworthy features:
    • Easier large data streaming
    • Easier protocol codec unit-testing
    • I/O timeout and idle state detection
    • Easier and safer application shutdown
    • More reliable OutOfMemoryError prevention
    • New transports:
      • OIO and NIO based UDP transport
      • Local transport (a.k.a. in-VM transport)
      • HTTP tunneling transport that bypasses a firewall
    • New out-of-the-box codecs:
      • HTTP client and server
      • Various utilities for proprietary protocol implementations

  2. Trustin, Documentation looks good ! Any info describing differences between MINA and Netty ? Thank you Claude Hussenet
  3. Congrats Trustin![ Go to top ]

    I'll definitely check it out. Considering the sluggish release cycle of MINA since your departure, it's looking increasingly worth the switch.
  4. In my own simple tests, netty's performance is as good as Grizzly but netty's document is much much better;
  5. Congrats![ Go to top ]

    Congratulations to the Netty team. It is great to have this open source option for network development. Cheers, E. Conde Lead Developer jBilling.com - Open Source Billing
