The retepMicroKernel is a small container for Spring based applications.

It manages the entire startup process of Spring, provides a pluggable architecture for components to be automatically deployed, an internal JNDI service and annotations for declaring how beans are deployed so that you can create an application without any messy xml.

It's not intended to replace larger application containers like GlassFish, JBoss or SpringSource DM Server but is targeted at applications where the use of a full J2EE/OSDI container would be overkill, limited memory, Desktop based applications or applications which contain discrete independent components - like a core application and then smaller applications which manage the core.

Clustering is supported internally for Terracotta although you can use other clustering technologies like JGroups. .
