Project Spotlight

Asynchronous HTTP Server (AHS)

The AHS was open sourced with the 1.6.0 release making ICEfaces entirely open source. The AHS overcomes the limitations of the standard Servlet model where each outstanding asynchronous XMLHttpRequest occupies its own thread causing thread requirements to grow linearly with the number of clients. AHS is particularly important for applications delivering Ajax Push to a large number of users.

The AHS handles thread-level scalability issues. It is designed to support single as well as clustered application server deployments with one or more ICEfaces applications deployed on it. To download the AHS, click here. For more information on AHS, please review the AHS Development Guide.
