 The core servlet model can't really be converted to
using non-blocking I/O. The whole point is that your
servlet gets its own thread. On the other hand, other
servlet containers have been doing things like using
NIO to watch idle persistent connections, and there
look to be great opportunities for improving standalone
Tomcat's performance in sending static files.

 There are some threads in the tomcat-dev archives you
might want to check out.
