Developing modular web-based applications is easy using the HTTP-service implementation of Apache Felix. It hides the complexity and boilerplate code needed to get your servlets and filters up and running in no-time. With the recent effort in aligning the HTTP-service with the latest servlet specifications, new functionality like asynchronous servlets and filters will be supported out-of-the-box.
In this presentation we will not only talk about the new features provided by the Felix HTTP-service implementation, but also demonstrate how to use them in your project. In addition, we talk about upcoming improvements to the Felix HTTP-service, like native support for SPDY and WebSockets.
