JVMPin

JVMPin provides a nodejs implementation of the nailgun protocol.

Information about nailgun can be found at http://www.martiansoftware.com/nailgun/. While the nailgun native library and java dependencies can either be found at sourceforge or resolved via the maven repository using the dependency:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.martiansoftware</groupId>
    <artifactId>nailgun</artifactId>
    <version>0.7.1</version>
</dependency>

Usage

The JVMPin library can be installed via npm by adding the following to your package.json's dependencies or devDependencies sections:

"dependencies": {
    "jvmpin": "1.x"
}

You will need to start your nailgun instance in another process (this is a task I leave to the reader).

Then simply connect to the nailgun instance using:


var jvmpin = require('jvmpin');

var proc = jvmpin.createConnection(1234, 'localhost').spawn('your.main.Class');

// now to take over the currently running context by binding stdio
proc.stdout.pipe(process.stdout);
proc.stderr.pipe(process.stderr);

process.stdin.pipe(proc.stdin);
proc.on('exit', function(c) { process.exit(); })
