At the end of the following page there is a table comparing the
feature sets provided by the different connector implementations:

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/config/http.html

The main competitors are APR connector vs. Nio connector, as both
provide multiplexing aka polling, allowing to serve more sockets than
the count of your worker threads.

The APR connector sure has a bit more longer history, dating back to TC 5.5.
The Nio connector is more modern, available since TC 6.x only, but
that is several years already.

> less stable than the pure Java code

Note, that that also depends on the JRE implementation that you would be using.
