Webtide Jetty Update: Oct

__Webtide has produced one of the first Ajax/Comet benchmarks.

The workloads are designed to reflect real world situations, with  
large numbers of concurrent users, large numbers of connections with  
high activity, and real work performed on each message.  The outcome  
shows great scaling on minimal commodity hardware (to drive home the  
point, a Mac Mini, even!).  Consider these methods for the  
infrastructure in your upcoming rich internet application projects.

__Bayeux Protocol 1.0 due November 1, demo available now.

Webtide Demo from AjaxWorld:

Bayeux as implemented in Cometd is for bi-directional Ajax.   
Essentially your applications can have a message bus over HTTP  
through port 80 allowing highly scalable event based and server push  
based applications.  By putting communications into channels, Cometd  
can also handle items such as browsers' 2 connection limits and some  
good security options are available.  Consider enhancing your  
applications with this open source package.  Webtide authored the  
Java reference implementation.

__Jetty powering more than 200,000 domains.
