zlib implementation

A lightweight Web 3.0 framework for Scala, featuring a purely asynchronous architecture, extremely high-performance, massive scalability, high usability, and a functional, composable design.

The Netty project
The Netty project is an effort to provide an asynchronous event-driven network application framework and tools for rapid development of maintainable high performance & high scalability protocol servers & clients.

Runs on the JVM.
Everything is asynchronous.
Embraces the style of node.js and extends it to the JVM. Think node.js *on steroids*. Plus some.

Asynchronous scalable web applications with real-time persistent long-running connections with SignalR

A full-featured and high-performance event loop that is loosely modelled after libevent, but without its limitations and bugs. It is used, among others, in the GNU Virtual Private Ethernet and rxvt-unicode packages, and in the Deliantra MORPG Server and Client.

Event-based fully asynchronous I/O library for C (used by IO::AIO). Currently in BETA!

Reactor Pattern
The reactor design pattern is an event handling pattern for handling service requests delivered concurrently to a service handler by one or more inputs.

Proactor Pattern
Proactor is a software design pattern for Event handling in which long running activities are running in an asynchronous part. A Completion Handler is called after the asynchronous part has terminated. The proactor pattern can be considered to be an asynchronous variant of the synchronous reactor pattern.
