Subject Re: Connectors: Http11Protocol vs. Http11NioProtocol
Date Sat, 28 Jan 2012 19:07:37 GMT
andre, i'm sorry if i hurt your feelings and trust in humanity,
try to be positive, try to look on the situation from
another point of view, the one which is not depressive.
i hope my question & answer summary upgraded your level of tomcat understanding.
and that's a good thing, because you wouldn't understand connectors & async servlets
so well, if i didn't post the question in the first place and make the answer summary
in the second. i've already thanked both talkers, which makes me a very nice person :)
and even though slow pid still doesn't understand anything and arrogant mark still
searches for insignificant typos in my posts, i don't blame them for who they are :)
i hope everyone enjoyed the thread. thanks everyone. behave well :)
