Subject [mina][ANN] MINA 0.7.4 Released: A Network Application Framework
Date Sat, 03 Sep 2005 03:40:57 GMT
The Apache Directory team proudly announces the release MINA, a network 
application framework, version 0.7.4.

MINA (Multipurpose Infrastructure for Network Applications) is a network 
application framework which helps users develop network applications easily 
by providing abstractions of network and protocol I/O layers.

The MINA project website includes resources such as a PDF introduction to 
MINA ( and an 
online tutorial (, which 
includes implementation of the echo protocol, as well as an implementation 
of a "reverse echo" to show how MINA can process data.

Feture List:

* Unified and extensible API for various transport types (TCP and UDP)
* In-VM pipe communication
* Provides both low-level and high-level API
* Stream-based asynchronous I/O support
* Filter interface as an extension point; similar to Servlet filters
* SSL support via SSLFilter thanks to Java 5 SSLEngine
* Built-in thread pool
* Unit-test your protocol without network connection
* Smooth migration from Netty, a popular NIO framework

Changes since 0.7.3:

* Several bug fixes
* More user-friendly ByteBuffer management
