Cyclone is a low-level network toolkit that provides support for HTTP 1.1 in an API very similar to the one implemented by the Tornado Web server. It has localization based on gettext with pluralization support, native support for XMLRPC and JSONRPC, native support for WebSockets (drafts 75 and 76), decent support for sending plain text or HTML email with TLS and attachments, built-in support for Redis, and support for HTTP authentication.
JRedis is a high-performance Java client and connector framework and reference implementation for Redis distributed hash key-value database. It will provide both synchronous clients and asynchronous connections for Redis. The connectors will be both passive (non-threaded) and active, to address deployment scenarios and usage requirements.
