    Abstract

    The dissertation summarises the results of a performance analysis of the use of Node.js (JavaScript) for the execution of high volumes of long-running requests on a single fixed size server. The Node.js performance is compared to a traditional Java threaded model using the industry standard Tomcat 6 and Tomcat 7 hosting environment. The results indicate that Node.js can provide significant performance improvements in this type of task.
