Subject Re: [GlassFish] Using HttpClient from within an App server
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2007 11:36:58 GMT
Thanks for your answers,

5 000 is not a real limit,  It will depends on the load tests, and  I 
don't really expect to reach that number.
As my app is distributed, I can increase the number of machines if 
resources are too much stressed.
I understand better what really is the MTHCM... I think I will have to 
make a custom WorkManager which could 
take care of the connections itself if I want to use a single instance 
of HttpClient and then get better performances...
It's a pretty hard thing to do I think, and I'm going to see that later, 
if the perfs are really a problem.
 I'm going to try the multiple instances  solution. I will keep in mind 
your wise advise about closing connections

Thanks to all
