Extremely fast enterprise server framework, can be used in RPC, web server framework, game server framework.

Why is zfoo protocol ?

  • The protocol currently supports C++ C# Go Java Javascript TypeScript GDScript Lua
  • Universal distributed server protocol implementation, there are implementations in other languages, which can easily implement RPC, servers, and microservices on other platforms
  • The fastest custom format framework for Java binary serialization, with the fewest serialized bytes, more secure and compatible
  • In the single-threaded benchmark test, serialization and deserialization are 50% faster than Protobuf and 100% faster than Kryo

Ⅰ. Introduction of zfoo🚩

  • Extremely fast, asynchronous, Actor design pattern, lock-free design, RPC framework based on Spring MVC
  • Fastest serialization and deserialization,use zfoo protocol as a network protocol
  • High scalability,Single server deployment, microservice deployment, cluster deployment, gateway deployment
  • Can be used as a game server framework or website server framework.

Perfect work development process, complete online solution

  • Spring projects, distributed projects, container projects, hot update code without downtime hotswap
  • Excel json csv configuration is automatically mapped and parsed,Online hotswap configuration storage
  • Automapping framework for MongoDB orm
  • Event bus event
  • Time task scheduling scheduler
  • cpu, memory, hard disk, network monitoring built into the program no code and extra tools required monitor

Ⅱ. Who use this project

  • Projects with extremely high performance requirements, such as website and game server frameworks, single server, global server, live chat, IM system, real-time push
  • Projects such as saving, development, deployment, operation and maintenance costs
  • As a backend infrastructure for Godot,Unity,Cocos,Webgl,H5,Network protocol supports tcp udp websocket http
  • Keep it Simple and Stupid ,simple configuration, lightweight code

Ⅲ. Tutorials

  • FAQ,There are standard demo display and instructions in the test folder of each project directory,
    which can be run directly

  • tank-game-server Online game《The Fight of Tanks》,novice friendly,
    difficulty 2 stars

  • godot-bird bird and bird,powered by godot

  • cocos-fivechess five chess,use cocos as client

Ⅳ. Install and use⭐

1. Environmental Requirements and Installation

JDK 11+OpenJDK or Oracle JDK ,maven install to local repository

If you do not have JDK 11+ installed, the quick installation method is to download directly 
from Project Structure, Platform Settings, SDKs in the upper right corner of Idea
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2. protocol fastest serialization and deserialization

// zfoo protocol registration, can only be initialized once
ProtocolManager.initProtocol(Set.of(ComplexObject.class, ObjectA.class, ObjectB.class));

// serialization
ProtocolManager.write(byteBuf, complexObject);

// deserialization
var packet =;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

3. net fastest RPC framework, supports tcp udp websocket http

// Service provider, only need to add an annotation to the method, the interface will be automatically registered
public void atUserInfoAsk(Session session, UserInfoAsk ask) {

// Consumers, synchronously requesting remote service, will block the current thread
var userInfoAsk = UserInfoAsk.valueOf(userId);
var answer = NetContext.getCosumer().syncAsk(userInfoAsk, UserInfoAnswer.class, userId).packet();

// Consumers, asynchronously requesting remote service, and will still execute logic in the current thread after the asynchronous
                    .asyncAsk(userInfoAsk, UserInfoAnswer.class, userId)
                    .whenComplete(sm -> {
                        // do something
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

4. hotswap hot update code, no need to stop the server, no additional configuration, just one line of code to start hot update

// Pass in the class file that needs to be updated
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

5. orm automatic mapping framework based on mongodb,The secondary cache is designed using caffeine to fully release the database pressure

// You don't need to write sql and any configuration yourself, define a table in the database directly through annotation definitions
public class UserEntity implements IEntity<Long> {
    private long id;
    private String name;

// update database data
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

6. event use the observer design pattern, decouples different modules and improves the quality of the code

// To receive an event, you only need to add an annotation to the method and the method will be automatically listen for the event
public void onMyNoticeEvent(MyNoticeEvent event) {
    // do something

// fire an event
EventBus.submit(MyNoticeEvent.valueOf("My event"));
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

7. scheduler scheduling Framework Based on Cron Expression

@Scheduler(cron = "0/1 * * * * ?")
public void cronSchedulerPerSecond() {
    // do something
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


8. storage Excel to class automatic mapping framework, you only need to define a class corresponding to Excel, and directly parse Excel

public class StudentResource {
private int id;
private String name;
private int age;
