Concurrent Server-side JavaScript on the JVM

This is a short presentation of RingoJS, a Node.js-like CommonJS environment, which supports threaded JavaScript on the server. RingoJS is a CommonJS-based JavaScript runtime written in Java and based on the Mozilla Rhino JavaScript engine. It takes a pragmatical and non-dogmatic stance on things like I/O paradigms. Blocking and asynchronous I/O both have their strengths and weaknesses in different areas.
