Switch branches/tags

Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Latest commit

…ame hostname (#13186)


To reduce the overhead we can shortcut queries for the same hostname until the first query comes back. This will reduce queries and so overhead


- Add new builder option that allows to shortcut queries to the same hostname (default this is disabled)


Be able to reduce queries

Build project

Netty Project

Netty is an asynchronous event-driven network application framework for rapid development of maintainable high performance protocol servers & clients.


How to build

For the detailed information about building and developing Netty, please visit the developer guide. This page only gives very basic information.

You require the following to build Netty:

Note that this is build-time requirement. JDK 5 (for 3.x) or 6 (for 4.0+ / 4.1+) is enough to run your Netty-based application.

Branches to look

Development of all versions takes place in each branch whose name is identical to <majorVersion>.<minorVersion>. For example, the development of 3.9 and 4.1 resides in the branch '3.9' and the branch '4.1' respectively.

Usage with JDK 9+

Netty can be used in modular JDK9+ applications as a collection of automatic modules. The module names follow the reverse-DNS style, and are derived from subproject names rather than root packages due to historical reasons. They are listed below:

  • io.netty.all
  • io.netty.buffer
  • io.netty.codec
  • io.netty.codec.dns
  • io.netty.codec.haproxy
  • io.netty.codec.http
  • io.netty.codec.http2
  • io.netty.codec.memcache
  • io.netty.codec.mqtt
  • io.netty.codec.redis
  • io.netty.codec.smtp
  • io.netty.codec.socks
  • io.netty.codec.stomp
  • io.netty.codec.xml
  • io.netty.common
  • io.netty.handler
  • io.netty.handler.proxy
  • io.netty.resolver
  • io.netty.resolver.dns
  • io.netty.transport
  • io.netty.transport.epoll (native omitted - reserved keyword in Java)
  • io.netty.transport.kqueue (native omitted - reserved keyword in Java)
  • io.netty.transport.unix.common (native omitted - reserved keyword in Java)
  • io.netty.transport.rxtx
  • io.netty.transport.sctp
  • io.netty.transport.udt

Automatic modules do not provide any means to declare dependencies, so you need to list each used module separately in your module-info file.
