Hey guys,

I'm looking into using Activiti but wanted to make sure I was headed in the right direction. I've read the documentation but some points still aren't clear and I was hoping the people here could help. Please bear with me if I missed anything obvious.

I would like to delegate all workflow activities a non java application does to activiti. I was thinking of installing Activiti along side the application and having them interact. From reading the documentation I know I can get this much done. But I have a few concerns that don't seem to be covered by the documentation. These concerns are mostly related to CPU + RAM usage as Activiti will be running on the same platform the application is using.

1 - First I would like to know if using the REST API is the only way I would have of interacting with Activiti in my case (non java app)? Or is there some form of command line option available? (I'm not interested in a user interface)
2 - Secondly using the REST API implies using TomCat is that correct? I trust that Activiti has rather low consumption but TomCat is another thing altogether. Does anyone know what kind of ressources such a set up would used for a very low usage? Also would you have any low consumption alternatives to TomCat?

Thanks in advance. And let me know if I left out any important information.
If anything is obvious or you don't want to bother too much feel free to link me to ressources, I'm not afraid of reading ;)
