  Building Highly Scalable Servers with Java NIO

In your article you mention using a round robin technique on a pool of Event Dispatch Thread. I downloaded your example code, but it seems that everything is dispatched from the SelectorThread, i.e., the server is single threaded. Am I missing something? Where are the Event Dispatch Threads being created?

Thank you,

    You are right in that the sample code is single threaded. It was a simplification I've made to post the code online, as I wanted to make the code as clear as possible. The original source code, uses a round robin strategy with around 3 to 4 threads. Implementing that is really a trivial extension, it should be no problem for anyone willing to spend an afternoon tweaking the code.
