Undertow, Vert.x, and Netty Benchmarks

90 frameworks (including web application platforms, full-stack frameworks, and micro-frameworks) are compared using 230 tests by Tech Empower. The tests execute fundamental tasks such as JSON serialization, database access, and server-side template composition.
