Axmor publishes article on asynchronous architectures in Java EE
Experts from Axmor and IBM co-authored an article about the role of asynchronous architectures for Java EE applications on "IBM developerWorks".
The article was released by Axmor's System Architect Constantine Plotnikov in joint authorship with IBM's Architect Artem Papkov and IBM's Manager Jim Smith. All conclusions are based on analysis of the interaction between Web 2.0 and the standard Java EE platform. Constantine describes the challenges of modern Web 2.0 applications, and reviews different currently available approaches for their resolutions. The article explains why asynchronous, event-driven architectures are more appropriate for Web 2.0 applications.
Web 2.0 applications developed using standard Java© Platform, Enterprise Edition 5 (Java EE)-based approaches face serious performance and scalability problems. The reason for this is that many principles that underlie the Java EE platform's design, especially the use of synchronous APIs, do not meet the requirements of Web 2.0 solutions. This article explains the disparity between the Java EE and Web 2.0 approaches, explores the benefits of asynchronous designs, and evaluates some solutions for developing asynchronous Web applications with the Java platform.
