== Characteristics ==

  * Uses the [[http://www.lshift.net/blog/2007/02/17/json-and-json-rpc-for-erlang|rfc4627]] module from [[http://www.lshift.net/|LShift]]
  * eCouch design was inspired by the article [[http://www.trapexit.org/Building_a_Non-blocking_TCP_server_using_OTP_principles|Building a Non-blocking TCP server using OTP principles]]
  * It assumes that the [[http://www.erlang.org/doc/apps/inets/index.html|inets]] application is running

  * Follows all the OTP design principles
  * Can run stand-alone with its own supervision tree or be included inside an existing supervision tree
