Atmosphere vs Tornado: What are the differences?
Atmosphere: Realtime Client Server Framework for the JVM, supporting WebSockets and Cross-Browser Fallbacks Support. The Atmosphere Framework contains client and server side components for building Asynchronous Web Applications. The majority of popular frameworks are either supporting Atmosphere or supported natively by the framework. The Atmosphere Framework supports all major Browsers and Servers; Tornado: A Python web framework and asynchronous networking library, originally developed at FriendFeed. By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.
