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 Think we would need to provide explicit step-by-step instructions in our docs (even if they got out of date).
