The road forward for systemd
Posted May 28, 2010 11:38 UTC (Fri) by nim-nim (subscriber, #34454)
The point is to have an init system able to instanciate existing j2ee servers (certifications, warts and all), either as a system-wide service (production j2ee server) or as per-user instances in the user session (j2ee server instance attached to user ide).
If rewriting with other tech was the answer we'd have java/.net/ruby/whatever OSes by now.
The value of a good init system is too be able to manage existing software gracefully.

You don't understand
People doing dev want their private daemon that is identical (ports excluded) to the one they will have system-wide in production
As soon as you start changing it so it does not behave like the system one you reduce the whole setup value.
