Welcome to Inkstand
Inkstand is a lightweight microservice container for easing the creation of standalone REST services. It natively supports CDI 1.1 and Jax-RS so that services written for Inkstand and completely portable to any Java EE compliant Application Server. It's intended to be a standards-conforming integrative framework supporting multiple alternative implementation to the same standard APIs. So the technology stack you use is completely up to you.
- JCR Support for providing content served by a JCR Repository
- LDAP based authentication
- Library for simplifying functional testing Scribble
Inkstand is based on the idea of John Ament (Announcing Hammock), putting an Undertow WebServer and RESTeasy in a Weld CDI container. Inkstand has been almost entirely been rewritten and extended with support for configuration, auto-discovery and some more.
