Introducing RHEA

I’ve decided to open-source a Wowza Media Server module I originally wrote for a customer of mine and in the end wasn’t compensated for (whatever the reason might be).

Meet rhea, simple module that allows you to restart Wowza Media Server application via HTTP call.

The main difference to the shutdown JMX call is that it will atomically terminate all clients and mediacasters, therefore terminating the application immediately (in most circumstances, anyway). Thus any clients connecting during the shutdown sequence will be connected to a newly started instance, possibly with updated Application.xml.

You can even get rhea release file in case compiling with Ant is not your strongest point.
