ARES (Actions Relay Event Service) is a cross-platform Java application that acts as an event listener that dispatches configured actions in response to events, as defined in the SAFRActions.config file. ARES can provide replies on any event to be handled by the client originating the event and is normally installed as a service by either the SAFR Platform or SAFR Edge installers. It's constantly active and is automatically started by the operating system on power-up.
