LispNYC's Web Application Server
The highly acclaimed lightweight Jetty webserver is configured for the use with our LispNYC Homebase Webapp, also included is the Pebble Blog and JSP Wiki webapps.
- deploy the LispNYC Homebase Webapp
After the LispNYC Homebase Webapp has been built and deployed here, just run:
Then hit http://localhost:8000
The Jetty Webserver executes THREE webapps:
Because the initial homepage of LispNYC is dynamic, the Homebase Webapp is the main application and thus runs as the main context. This means that by default it intercepts all requests including ones for things like CSS, HTML and images ...which is not what we want all the time.
There are several techniques to handle this, the one we chose is to set up a seperate context for static files and serve it up there. It's also a scaling technique: using Apache or a CDN to serve up static files.
