JSSE is known to have poor performances compared with OpenSSL additionally ALPN required by HTTP/2 won't be in the JVM before java9. The goal of the new connector is to get ride of the old APR connector and use the NIO or NIO2 one and still have the performances of OpenSSL. Additionally the tc-native can be used in other java web server for example undertow, the presentation will explain how and demo it quickly. The presentation will explain the new code and the corresponding configuration and show the performance improvements: With the new piece of code Tomcat with the NIO or NIO2 connector gives even a better throughput than with the old APR connector!
