Subject Re: AW: Running James as WAR [unsigned]

Hi Bernd,

I understand what you are trying to achieve and it makes perfect sense IMO.

We are writing a proposal about what we would like to see in James 3.0, 
you can find it here : https://github.com/apache/james-project/pull/42

Comments (and help, of course) are welcome. If you want the War 
deployment to be supported, maybe you can offer some help ?

I personally prefer a jar deployment with the http server built in. 
Security fix are more likely happening in anything but jetty nowadays so 
making a specific case just for the servlet container seems to 
complicated to me.

We need to work with shared databases here, which may be of concern at runtime.

to replace the war file, and let tomcat do the deployment.
