    I would like to use yajsw but the core version still has a lot of functionality that I don't want to use.

    It's easy for me to strip down groovy and netty from the project?

    To which features are this libraries tied up?

    Thx, in advance

    groovy is used:

    1. in the configuration. to remove: remove the usage of GInterpolator in YajswConfigurationImpl
    2. in scripts: to remove: remove the class GroovyScript


    1. netty is used for communication between trayicon and wrapper. so just remove tray icon. you can then remove hessian and ahessian.
    2. communication between wrapper and wrapped application: this will be the most difficult part, since you will need to reimplement the communication.

    however you can remove quite a lot from netty, since practically only the core of netty is used. therefore http, ssl, executor, etc are not required.

    Thx for the help I I will study the source and and try to clean what I don't need.

    But as suggestion for the future you could do a smaller core and put some features in optional jars.

    A smaller core just for installing, starting, stopping, and deleting a service would be great. It should include the restart feature if the wrapped process dies as well.
    At the moment I am using the core libraries only and they work very well but they still give a big installation package - it is bigger than the Java program that I want to run as a service - my program takes 2.2kBytes including standard libraries whereas YAJSW core needs 12.4KBytes.

    Ah sorry, its 2.2MBytes versus 12.4MBytes!

    I also think a "lite" version would be great. The size of the "core" libs is currently preventing me from migrating from jsw to jajsw :(
