Currently, everything that I've read indicates that you must run MongoDB as a separate process/service. Is there any way to host MongoDB in-process? If not now, are their known plans to implement such a feature?
Based on my experience with MongoDB and my skimming of the issue tracker tickets at http://jira.mongodb.org/browse/SERVER, I don't know of any way to host MongoDB in process. I also found no evidence of future plans to do so.
I would recommend asking this question on the mongodb-user mailing list: http://groups.google.com/group/mongodb-user
