With how many connected clients?  I am interested in how to build MOM
systems that can handle a large number of connected clients, each
generating few messages, but with many messages being "broadcasted" to a
large number of clients.

Most discussions of performance testing seem to center around a
relatively small number of clients (dozen, hundreds) generating a lot of
activity each.

of connected sockets, deriving from the need to have a thread (or more)
for every one, in the current Java networking APIs.  How high could Java
reasonably go before this becomes a problem?)
