Projects / Netty


The Netty project is an effort to provide an asynchronous, event-driven network application framework and tools for rapid development of maintainable, high-performance, high-scalability protocol servers and clients. In other words, Netty is a NIO client server framework that enables quick and easy development of network applications such as protocol servers and clients. It simplifies and streamlines network programming such as TCP and UDP socket servers.
