I feel your pain.  That's why I use Caucho Resin instead...  Although it
does have issues if you are dynamically generating graphics for the same
URI.  It has an aggressive cache.

The Haboob server built on SEDA has promise--although it is primarily a
research project.  Imagine being able to gracefully handle 10,000
clients simultaneously with a proper scaling of performance--all in
Java.  (it makes use of the NBIO library with JNI).  It is no where
near Servlet compliant, but as a static HTML or simple CGI based server
that is impressive by any standard.

In fact this server outperformed Apache HTTPD 1.3.x in tests on a Linux
box!  Incredimazing!

No you aren't.
