PROJECT PROPOSAL

AsyncWeb: A non-blocking HTTP engine written in Java

RATIONALE

The Directory MINA sub-project is looking to expand beyond just being a protocol/server construction kit and move towards housing implementations of popular protocols.

AsyncWeb is a HTTP engine written on top of MINA. By bringing the project to the ASF and co-locating with MINA, it can leverage the community of MINA committers, gain increased visibility, and integration with other ASF projects.

INITIAL SOURCE

The initial source will come from the AsyncWeb project at Safehaus, <http://asyncweb.safehaus.org/>.
