Ninja is a full stack web framework for Java. Stork is an "after-build" tool for Java. Lately, I run all webapps in a stand-alone process (embed Jetty/Netty/etc) and use a reverse proxy (Nginx) to send requests to it. While Ninja is easy to package as a war file that's ready to run in Tomcat/Jboss/etc, it's not as easy to package it as a stand-alone app that can run as a daemon/service. Ninja + Stork to the rescue! Stork integrates with Ninja in just 2 easy steps.
