What is CyberCore

CyberCore is a lighweight application server, written in Java. It features a quite simple model - services are sigleton POJOs, loaded at startup and removed on shutdown.

They are bound to names in a dedicated configuration file, methods which are to be accessed from outside the server are simply annotated with an attribute.

Why does it exists ?

Today, a real wealthy of frameworks an approaches to build server application exists. undoubtedly, the most prominent one being Spring with some layers like Hibernate or MyBatis on top of it.

CyberCore can be considered as a lightweight alternative which delivers the same value. It is suitable for far less use-cases than the business world provides, but is much more effective and easy to maintain for the cases it is designed for. It's main orientation is the world of Data Analytics and the small projects where the usage of containers like Tomcat is inadequate.


The real value of the system comes from its next layer as is the CCIL framework. However, CyberCore by itself demonstrates some quite interesting abilities:

  • POJO application container. Describe your beans in the simple Turtle format and let them roll!
  • Simple connectivity via HTTP/JSON.

  • Ability to intra-process communication, the standard Java way.
  • Connectivity via ActiveMQ.
