Type Parameters:

public interface EmbeddedApplication<T extends EmbeddedApplication> extends ApplicationContextLifeCycle<T>

An EmbeddedApplication is a runnable application that starts and manages the ApplicationContext.

This interface is the parent interface of EmbeddedServer which formalizes the concept of a server that exposes a port and address

Applications that did not expose a port and address (messaging applications, CLI applications etc. may wish to use this interface instead
