If Spark Streaming could get closer to realtime there would be more interesting prospects
here. But as it is, in most use cases the discritization window is going to mean more latency
than you want to have for handling requests.

There are still some interesting analytics use cases in pushing http traffic into Spark Streaming.
Some process-heavy API systems might be able to do full request/response handling chiefly
via Spark Streaming. There is a reciprocal quesiton fo how to get data back to Jetty.

Mongrel2 and Ilya's article "Building a Modern [front-end routed] Web Stack" both come to

To really get deeply into the Realtime web-stack, we'd need to see Spark Streaming emerge
some closer-to-realtime/immediate-handling methods.
