Wouldn't having a separate server configuration require a separate 
runtime? It seems like a mistake to require another runtime for every 
application that you have. There is nothing precluding you from running 
multiple applications in a runtime but you have to be wary of 
collisions. This is particularly a problem when you have multiple apps 
that rely on some commonly used third party tool like Xerces. 
Application A was written to use Xerces version 1, App B uses Xerces 
version 2, and the container uses Xerces for its config file and uses 
version 7.
