Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] HttpComponents HttpCore 4.1-beta1 Released
Date Sat, 03 Apr 2010 16:50:40 GMT
The Apache HttpComponents project is pleased to announce the release of
HttpComponents HttpCore 4.1-beta1. This release finalizes the API
introduced in the 4.1 development branch. It also fixes a number of bugs
discovered since the previous release and delivers a number of
performance optimizations in the blocking HTTP transport components. The
blocking HTTP transport is expected to be 5% to 10% faster compared to
previous releases.

About HttpComponents Core - 
HttpCore is a set of low level HTTP transport components that can be
used to build custom client and server side HTTP services with a minimal
footprint. HttpCore supports two I/O models: blocking I/O model based on
the classic Java I/O and non-blocking, event driven I/O model based on
Java NIO. The blocking I/O model may be more appropriate for data
intensive, low latency scenarios, whereas the non-blocking model may be
more appropriate for high latency scenarios where raw data throughput is
less important than the ability to handle thousands of simultaneous HTTP
connections in a resource efficient manner.
