I'm planning out a CDN that will use socket servers / clients to support communication among multiple origin and edge servers. I'm planning on building this around Mina, and since all of the data I need is already present in WMS, I'm thinking that I'll build this to run inside a WMS application. This leads me to a couple of questions:
1. What version of Mina is included in wms-core.jar ?
2. Is there anything about wowza's architecture that would make running a separate socket server, or running a socket client in the same VM a bad idea? The socket server would likely be on a WMS instance that in not serving streams, and each WMS server instance would run only one or two concurrent client connections to the server.
