this is indeed very helpful!
I started looking at the libraries used by Dropwizard and couldn't
resist to try out the Metrics library which provides very useful
performance data. In order to use it, I had to switch from Ant to Maven
which kept me busy for a while. And at a later point, when reading more
about Dropwizard and alternatives, I found myself watching a Spring
tutorial. And then I realized that I'll need an alternative for
fetching recent Tor directory data than rsync'ing a few hundred thousand
files from the metrics server. Wow, where did all these wonderful yaks
come from, and who's going to shave them?!
tl;dr: thanks for the very valuable pointer! :)
All the best,
