Subject Deployment Standards / Definitions
Date Sun, 12 Dec 2010 07:23:58 GMT
I've created an issue on Jira.


Have you got any initial concepts, draft implementations, ideas etc?  
Please post them on River-379

projects you listed below), and you can start any of the stock River services using Rio, but
Rio is much more than that. If all you want is a container use ServiceStarter.

a standard service descriptor/archive that documents that meta data associated with a service
(artifacts, configuration, system requirements, etc ....). In this way developers dont require
a standardized deployment container, but can be confident that using a standardized archive
and bundling format that any 'container' can instantiate their service.
