buildr-tomcat

buildr-tomcat provides a plugin for Buildr that allows you to run a war-packaged project in an embedded Tomcat.

It is largely based on the Jetty plugin, but is somewhat simplified.

Installation

git clone https://github.com/technophobia/buildr-tomcat.git
cd buildr-tomcat
./build.sh
gem install ./buildr-tomcat-0.0.1.gem

Usage

require 'tomcat'

...

desc 'This is my project'

define 'MyProject' do

	define "my-webapp" do
		compile.with # some dependencies here
		package(:war)

		task('tomcat') do |task|
			name = 'my-webapp'
			Buildr::Tomcat::explode(self)
			Buildr::Tomcat.new(name, "http://localhost:8084/#{name}", "#{name}/target/#{name}-#{VERSION_NUMBER}").run

			trap 'SIGINT' do
				puts "Stopping Tomcat"
				tomcat.stop
			end
			Thread.stop
		end
	end

	...

end

Modification

If you need to modify the Java code (in java/src/main/java), there's a Buildr buildfile in java/. Simply execute '''buildr eclipse''' to generate the necessary Eclipse project files, and import as usual. (You can do IDEA too, if that's your thing).

You can rebuild the whole thing (including the Java) and repackage as a Gem by running '''build.sh'''.
