This was my entry in a IO read & XML parse bakeoff against Node and Goliath. Netty didn't preform as well as I had hoped. It matched goliath but got crushed by Node. My entry took longer to read the stream than Node took to read & parse. However, I suspect that is a result of:

  • I don't know what i was doing
  • The bakeoff only required the entries to read & parse a single stream. I suspect that Netty may have really shined if we had to read multiple streams concurrently - because the Javers can handle threads.
