Putting the Java applications into the same application server would
save a fair amount of memory. Running Java applications takes a
surprising amount of memory, so having them share a runtime would add
I think the best thing folks could do to make a "corporate open source
spatial" strategy work would be to give folks a means of easily
creating apps and moving them through the devel/test/production chain.
Access to scripting languages with database access (PHP, Python,
whatever) and a standard application packaging standard that allows
folks to "deploy from a tag". Basically once an app is "done" in
development, tag it and push "deploy" and it's pulled into test
without human hands touching it. Once it's passed test, again, mash a
button and boom it's live on production.
Fun fun fun!
