What's Better, NIO or IO? On Benchmarking your Server...


Another good writeup from Scott (time trip: [1], [2], [3, [4]) this time on using NIO vs IO, partly as followup to JD Campbell's Top Java 5 EE Servers Compared.

Scott compares simple and complex cases: in a simple request/response case the overhead of the select() call implied by NIO is noticeable, but in the more complex case where you need to scale, NIO is the clear winner.

Check out Scott's note and you may also enjoy browsing other entries in his blog.
