This week's book giveaway is in the Testing forum. We're giving away four copies of The Way of the Web Tester: A Beginner's Guide to Automating Tests and have Jonathan Rasmusson on-line! See this thread for details.

- when it accepts a connection, it creates an Event with the SocketChannel in it
- the Event is offered to the Queue
- each Worker thread has its own Selector and a DB Connection
- the Worker thread takes the Event from the Queue, sets the Selector and the DB Connection in it and calls Event's method getProcessed
- the Event reads the SocketChannel (always fine), queries the DB (always fine) and writes to the SocketChannel (works under Windows and fails under Red Hat)

When it succeeds and when it fails, the log is always perfect:
