Re: Off-the-shelf Standalone App Framework? walid joseph Gedeon Tue Apr 03 06:05:29 2007

How do you shutdown the app? do you ctrl-c (or kill)? or do you use an
excalibur specific "shutdown" mechanism (through an admin console)?

We use Excalibur for the MinneTAC trading agent (see
I've attached the "container" module that starts everything up, and you
can of course download the source and see how the configuration files
work. Our experience is that once you have figured out the container and
how to write config files, Excalibur stays nicely in the background and
