We had a foss4g code-sprint several years ago to test and write up marline install instructions. While Ian Turton mentored the volunteer trying out the software; the results never hit our documentation.
The performance improvement offered by Marlin really makes it the only-way-to-play for GeoServer. What would it take to enable it by default?
1) Bin download
add jar to bin download
adjust start.sh and start.bat scripts to include it as a boot classpath option
2) Windows service
as above, options added to service wrapper config
as above, options added to wrapper
have to add manual install instructions, not sure if we should include the jar or provide seperate link to marlin website. Think we would need to provide explicit step-by-step instructions in our docs (even if they got out of date).
