Subject Re: Node.x

Hi Tim,

I remember I took a quick look at node.x a couple of weeks ago. Think I saw some link on HN.
I like the idea and I also liked the code I examined. I definitely think Apache Deft could
get some inspiration from node.x, and maybe the other way around (?). Would be awesome to
share some experience some time. Feel free to come visit us on #deft on free node sometime.

With Best Regards 
Roger Schildmeijer

Ps. Apache Deft is more than just a non-blocking http web server. We (currently) provide an
asynchronous socket interface ( We recently finished a somewhat
bigger demo application (see package o.a.d.demo.elastica) that should give you some ideas
about how Apache Deft could be used for async socket/io related stuff. Ds
