gumdrop is a multipurpose Java server using asynchronous I/O. It provides a servlet container implementing the servlet 2.4 specification.
Because the number of threads in the gumdrop servlet container is independent of the number of concurrent connections, it can scale much better than traditional Java web servers like Tomcat. It also avoids dependency on large, slow libraries and is therefore quite fast ☺. It is, however, 100% Java code.
Projects are under way to provide HTTPS and JSP support for gumdrop. Future directions also include FTP and WebDAV connectors.
