[erlang-questions] REST server

Hi!

I am an almost complete noob regarding this, so please excuse me if I am
asking questions with obvious answers.

I have an application that I'd like to expose via a REST api. From what I
could find quickly, in the Erlang world it looks like the main options are
Webmachine and Cowboy.

Does anyone have any advice on which one fits better my requirements, as
below?

- the server must be embeddable in another application, i.e. possible to
start/stop without a release
- it must be possible to configure it to use a dynamic port value (multiple
independent servers may run on the same machine)
- the REST API is delegating to an Erlang API, so ease of implementation
would be nice :-)
- if it is possible to run multiple servers on the same Erlang runtime,
then it would be a big plus

best regards,
Vlad
