Submission + - The Road Ahead For Rising Node.js (

snydeq writes: "Node.js is gaining traction as an application development platform among the likes of Microsoft and Yahoo, but questions remain about JavaScript's appropriateness on servers and developers' readiness to use it, InfoWorld reports. The project's event-driven, nonblocking I/O model makes it ideal for data-intensive, real-time applications running across distributed devices, according to Node.js advocates, and Node.js creator Ryan Dahl sees Node.js even displacing Java on servers. But others, such as eBay's Ted Dziuba, see Node.js as a "scalability disaster waiting to happen." A formal 1.0 version should arrive this summer, according to Dahl, who recently stepped down as gatekeeper of Node.js. Among features planned for Node.js are binary modules to allow developers to interface with system libraries written in C."
