Subject Re: Best way to bundle zk in our product

HI Rakesh,

Thanks for your response. If ZK call System.ext() my application will
immediately crash I guess. And can I connect to ZK using zkCli if I do
embedded mode.

I believe answer is NO...

I have a feeling cleanest way is to ask users to download ZK and start or
bundle ZK jars with all scripts and always start as a separate JVM.
