Is there a lean-mean jazz server instance download

The jazz server instance that is available for download contains a lot of stuff and is a pretty big install. I suspect there is value in creating a lean version of the jazz server instance which has only the platform with no source control etc.

Is such a thing available or does it even make sense. I guess the alternative is a regular old application server. Still, looking for alternatives involving the jazz platform.

Technically this is possible by using the Jazz Server Provisioner SDK
although it is currently not setup with this in mind.

You will have to modify the profile.ini file in the server directory and
also modify the site.xml in the update-site directory. For all the
"feature" elements in the site.xml add a "category" child element like
this :

<feature url="..." patch="false" id="..." version="...">
<category name="Jazz Server Component"/>
</feature>

Then change the profile.ini to this :

url=file:./update-site
featureid=com.ibm.team.repository.server.feature

When the server.startup script is now run instead of the full RTC server
being installed you will have a server containing just the repository
component. You can then point a browser to
https://localhost:9443/jazz/admin and install and start other RTC
components via the components page. You will currently need to restart
the server in between component installs.
