AsyncWeb: A non-blocking HTTP engine written in Java
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.
The initial source will come from the AsyncWeb project at Safehaus, <http://asyncweb.safehaus.org/>.
AsyncWeb is closely aligned with MINA, since that is its foundation.
AsyncWeb is already licensed under the Apache License 2.0
AsyncWeb is not currently orphaned, and by joining MINA, hopes to add vitality to the project.
The existing AsyncWeb committers have experience working in open source projects.
No two existing committers are from the same company.
Just a user of MINA.
