Updating webservices without downtime

Hey guys,

In continuation of this issue I’ve created on Github, I was wondering if there may be other people like me who are trying to get webservices working in Docker Swarm Mode and being able to update them without interrupting the service.

Basically, what I’m trying to archieve with Docker Swarm, is zero-downtime deployments. At the moment, this seems impossible because containers are stopped while they are still in the ingress load-balancing pool. Has anyone else thought about this and maybe even come up with some kind of workaround?
