[erlang-questions] REST server

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

- 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,
