We have measured the performance of HTTP GET request using JMH as a benchmark tool:

Time: 29112ms;Average time: 5822.4ms;Best time: 5757ms;Worst time: 5892ms;Requests per second: 171750;

ActiveJ's result is 171.8K RPS on a single CPU. This is not only faster than the highly specialized Vert.x (162.9K RPS), but also with 50% less CPU load.

When using HTTP pipelining, performance reaches 1.5M RPS.

ActiveJ has placed first in the-benchmarker's web frameworks benchmark as per 2022-03-15.

According to the results of the TechEmpower's continuous benchmark runs, ActiveJ HTTP ranks among the top Java servers in the JSON and Plaintext categories.
