Let's also not forget that a number of us choose option 3....running eXist in a J2EE container other than Jetty or
standalone. I use Tomcat, but there are many other J2EE/Servlet containers out there that should not be excluded.
So it's not just Jetty or standalone. We need to continue to support packaging as a war file.
I would also like to respectfully suggest that we already have a decent "deployment engine". It's called Ant. There is
not much you can't do by way of automated deployment using Ant. In our situation, we have Ant scripts that will create a
customized war file for Tomcat deployment, and will also deploy our whole application (xqueries, data, config files,
Some will complain that this is not standardized, which is true. But then again, most deployment environments are not
standardized and will need customization, in my experience.
My 2 cents worth on the topic...
