High Performance Servlets With Apache 2.0
Pier Fumagalli, Apache Software Foundation - VNU Business Publications

Track: Java
Date: Wednesday, July 24
Time: 4:30pm - 5:15pm
Location: Marina III

After recently joining VNU Business Publications in London, I had to face one problem: how to deliver 10 million Servlet generated pages a day without scaling massively on hardware. The solution was the adoption of Apache 2.0 and a new approach to Servlet Engines. Using parts of Tomcat 4.0 and embedding them directly into the multi-threaded architecture of Apache we were able to have performance increase in the order of 500% compared to closed-source and highly priced alternatives. In this session the audience will be introduced to what are the problems related to having high loads on Servlet-based sites, what are the possible solutions when scaling on hardware is not an option, and how to implement them in their environment.
