News 24. April 2014: New version of DDSL-Dropwizard-Plugin with Dropwizard 0.7.0 support is released.
DDSL – Dynamic Distributes Service Locator – enables your applications to be discovered by other applications or reverse-proxies like nginx without any manual reconfiguration. DDSL uses Apache Zookeeper to make Service Discovery possible in a distributed way without any single point of failure.
When using DDSL you can automatically scale your system up by just starting a new instance of one of your applications on some random machine, since the built-in Load-balancer in DDSL will automatically start sending traffic to it.
