Asynchronous Servlets is a feature of the Servlet 3.0 Specification in the Java EE 6 environment. Using Asynchronous Servlets allows you to interact between requests and responses from different threads and free the request handling thread to optimize the performance of the server.
This tutorial will guide you through the process of creating a simple application that will use Asynchronous Servlets for push notifications. The application will allow you to post messages to the server and the server will push the new messages to all the Web browsers displaying the application using the Asynchronous Servlet.
