The Grizzly community has released 2.1. Interestingly enough, this was going to be the first patch release of 2.0, however, since this release has many new features it was deemed we should go straight to 2.1.

2.1 Feature Guide

  • Apache JServ Protocol (AJP) Support – We’ve implemented the AJP protocol support via a pair of Filters. If your Grizzly-based HTTP application requires load balancing, you can simply add these filters to your FilterChain to enable the support. Further documentation can be found here.
  • Multipart Form Submission Processing – This feature allows developers to process multipart form requests from a client. Documentation for this feature is here.
  • LZMA Compression – While 1.9 included LZMA support for HTTP response compression, Grizzly 2.1 supports compression at the core framework level as well as bi-directionally within the HTTP framework (documentation forthcoming).
  • WebSockets refresh – WebSockets support has been updated from -76 to draft 06 (documentation forthcoming).

In addition to these features, there have been numerous bug and performances fixes. See the release notes for details.

We, the community, hope you find this release useful. If you have any problems with this release, or have some ideas for improvements or new features, please log an issue as appropriate. Several of the project developers can also be found on in the #grizzly channel. Stop by and chat.
