Subject Re: Could Click run on SimpleWeb?

I don't think it would be an easy task.
If you count in how many places javax.* package is used, you will see 
that it would require quite allot of changes.
If such a update would be made, than we would need to throw away the 
backward compatibility (one of the main selling points of Click) since 
the servlet API is also exposed to the user applications.

It looks fast indeed, but the tests there compare SimpleWeb to jetty 6 - 
not the new and faster jetty 7 :).
Also there's no comparison with Tomcat :) (at least 6, if not the new 
and faster Tomcat 7 - still RC for now).

I suppose you could try to run a Click application right now on 
SimpleWeb too, since SimpleWeb
seems to have a Servlet adapter:

(You can find some examples of running Tapestry and Wicket on SimpleWeb 
on the net, so Click should run too)
