Cargo provides different container implementations. A Container implementation can be either standalone or embedded. The embedded mode means that Cargo is using directly the container's Java API to control it. If you're using one of the embedded implementation you'll need to ensure that you have the container's jars in your classpath.
Advantages of embbeded mode:
- Faster. There's no need to start a new JVM nor new threads.
- Simpler. There's no need to install the container in a directory
Here is the list of container implementations that support the embedded mode:
