Netty in Action.pdf
DESCRIPTION Network applications must handle events intelligently and efficiently, establish priorities, resolve conflicts, and manage resources to avoid blocks, dropouts, and the other jams that occur in high-traffic environments. Netty is a Java-based networking framework designed to handle asynchronous network events smoothly so applications are easy to write and maintain. Netty in Action introduces the Netty framework and shows how to incorporate it into Java network applications. Readers will learn to write highly-scalable applications without the need to dive into the low-level non-blocking APIs at the core of Java. They'll learn how to think in an asynchronous way and master the best practices of large-scale networks apps while working through numerous hands-on examples. RETAIL SELLING POINTS Netty from the ground up Plenty of useful hands-on examples Used by companies including Red Hat, Twitter, and Facebook AUDIENCE Readers should be comfortable with Java and basic network architecture. No exposure to Netty or asynchronous network programming required. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY Netty is a Java-based networking framework designed to handle asynchronous network events smoothly so applications are easy to write and maintain. It has become one of the most widely used frameworks for the JVM and was awarded the "Dukes Choice Award."
