How would you compare this functionality to something like Node.js?
What has the reaction from the community been to this new feature?
Most people I have talked to have been very positive about it, but as this has not made its way into a WildFly final release yet it is too early to say. In my experience when we add a new feature most users wait until it is present in a final release before testing it out. WildFly 10 will be out soon and we will hopefully get some more feedback then.
Is this feature going to be something the WildFly team encourages in production environments?
Do you see this feature eventually making it into Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform?
Yes, this is slated to be included in EAP7 as a tech preview.
For those looking to experiment with this new functionality, WildFly 10 CR4 was just made available, with the final release of WildFly not far behind.
Thanks to Stuart for taking the time to answer these questions and providing this awesome piece of functionality.
