Subject [mina][ANN] Apache MINA 0.8.2 Released: A Network Application Framework
Date Fri, 23 Dec 2005 08:18:54 GMT
The Apache Directory team has announced the release of MINA, a network
application framework, version 0.8.2.

Apache 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

The MINA project website includes resources such as a PDF Introduction to
<> 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 0.8.1:

   - Several bug fixes

MINA is currently used by the Apache Directory
project<>and other open source projects.
Do you think you would use it? If so, where?
