SEDA is great technology. Probably the best SEDA implementation in Java
right now is called Mina and it's part of the Apache Directory project
(http://directory.apache.org/).  It is an awesome framework and is very
powerful.

We are using Mina right now as part of the next version of the Apache
Mail Server (James).  Using Mina we can easily handle thousands of
simultaneous SMTP, POP and IMAP connections.
