The goal of Simple is to bring simplicity, scalability, and performance to server side Java. The primary focus of the project is to provide a truly embeddable Java based HTTP and WebSocket engine capable of handling enormous loads. Simple provides a truly asynchronous service model, request completion is driven using an internal, transparent, monitoring system. This allows Simple to vastly outperform most popular Java based servers in a multi-tier environment, as it requires only a very limited number of threads to handle very high quantities of concurrent clients. Simple has consistently out performed both commercial and open source Java Servlet engines and WebSocket platforms and has a fully comprehensive API that is as usable for experienced Java developers as it is for beginners. Best of all, Simple is completely free, and is released under the terms of the Apache License, which ensures its availability for use by open source and proprietary developers alike.

Simple integrated with the Restlet framework
Simple has been bundled as a HTTP connector with the popular Restlet framework. The Restlet project is one of the first and most complete implementations of the new JAX-RS 1.0 specification. The Restlet project was started from the observation that no Java framework was available to help developers build RESTful applications.
