Subject Re: [VOTE] APR or NIO ?
Date Mon, 21 Nov 2005 09:35:39 GMT
Well why so much noise about NIO/APR ?

If some want to experiment APR or NIO, why can't they do their works
on some sort of incubations projets and when stable enough give us
benchmarks results.

Benchmarks/tesings should give us information on :

stability, speed, memory usage, IO usage and of course we should have
these on many platforms. For example if the alternative implementation
is running fast as hell on Linux but has no gain on Windows or iSeries
should we consider it usefull to users ?

Also should we depend on APR on a java centric project ?

I've got no problem with APR, it's a very good piece of code, running
well even on exotic platforms like iSeries (and probably BS2000 jfc
?), but should we use a native library as the fundation of Java
products ?

Also since we're speaking about a future Tomcat redesign, shouldn't we
take care of the future JVM implementations ? Sun, IBM JVMs for now
but in the future GJC and upcoming Harmony ? If these use APR or
something similar in native land, should we use APR directly ?

I'd like to see here pragmatics informations on gains expected when
using NIO/APR/WHATEVER in real life situations which is what users and
admins expects.

Have a good day and peace on Tomcat Dev community
