Lets not get too carried away here.....
AsyncWeb started life in an environment where all requests / responses were
of bounded size - and a complete in memory buffering was totally acceptable.
That does not in anyway mean that the asyncweb architecture does not allow
us to easily start to support full request and response streaming - without
any need to keep the request in memory.
In fact, it is something which will be arriving in to the AsyncWeb world
very soon.
Perhaps you should take a look at ASYNCWEB-21:
