Smart Forge, Java Application Framework
Gian Geminiani stashed this in open-source
I wonder what came of their experiment with Node: http://www.smartfeeling.org/smartforge/smartforge-is-testing-node-js-platform/
@Adam: experiments with Node was very useful to understand some peculiarity of Node architecture and environment.
My opinion is that Node is extraordinary and has really good performance, but is not a good choise for big projects.
Another issue is about native plug-in writing in C++. C++ is a wonderful language, but dangerous for developer with short experience.
Things I love in Node are:
But you can find same in RingoJs with better performance and more stability for real world applications.
After this experience with Node and RingoJs (and MongoDB) we started writing new framework for modular and scalable application development in Java: Smartly. https://github.com/smartfeeling/smartly
Soon I'll release also websocket module and the package manager (like npm of Node).
