Ferret

This sample project contains a simple Servlet application called Ferret. Ferret listens for HTTP requests sent to <host>:<port>/ferret[/*], and responds with information about the request and the server.

Running in Eclipse

  1. Download and install Eclipse with the WebSphere Developer Tools.
  2. Create a new Liberty Profile Server. See step 3 for details.
  3. Clone this repository.
  4. Import the sample into Eclipse using File -> Import -> Maven -> Existing Maven Projects option.
  5. Deploy the sample into Liberty server. Right click on the ferret sample and select Run As -> Run on Server option. Find and select the Liberty profile server and press Finish.
  6. Go to: http://localhost:9080/ferret

Running with Maven

This project can be build with Apache Maven. The project uses Liberty Maven Plug-in to automatically download and install Liberty profile runtime from the Liberty repository. Liberty Maven Plug-in is also used to create, configure, and run the application on the Liberty server.

Use the following steps to run the application with Maven:

  1. Execute full Maven build. This will cause Liberty Maven Plug-in to download and install Liberty profile server.

    $ mvn clean install
  2. To run the server with the Ferret sample execute:

    $ mvn liberty:run-server

Once the server is running, the application will be available under http://localhost:9080/ferret.
