I know Netty should be compare to nodeJS, because the thread-model, but, Do you think the non/blocking programming will replace some day the model 1 request 1 thread,massively ?, and How dramatically is the change from a 1Thread1Request model to a Netty?
If you want to handle a massive amount of concurrent connections one thread per request or even per connection does not scale for various reasons. Some of these are:
- memory usage for the thread stack
- context switching
So yes I think it already replace it in many situations ;)
