We have some specific EO data processing facility and are about to provide an access to one using WPS-based interface. The are plenty of solutions for the task. However, it is hard to find one that meets our requirements:

  1. Ability to deploy services (or processes) automatically (without UI)
  2. Ability to deploy service without rebuilding from sources or restarting the container. I.e. deployment of one service/process shouldn't affect others.
  3. Open/free license

There also some Java frameworks that allow to implement WPS service right in the app, but they are poorly documented.

Could anyone recommend something that suits our needs?
