It's been a while since last time I post here. I just want to share a project that I have started recently and hopefully it will benefit some of you.
In many places where I worked, they often needed a light, fast and standalone server like process that run easily without much hassle, compare to use a full blown JEE server. I often ended up writing the same bootstrapper service that does many of the basic things. We need logging, we need easy configuration set loader, we need remote control and management, and we need it NOW!
I have been started and collected some experimental code for a while on each time I learn how to do it better. So I finally created a new project under googlecode and named "spring-runner". You may call it a Fully functional Tiny Little Java Server. :)
I hope you will find it useful. Feel free to provide any feedback and comments on the project.
