RunWAR

RunWAR is a web server targeted at running Java and CFML applications, with some added features for Adobe ColdFusion and Lucee (configurable web/admin context locations, and opening the admin pages from the taskbar).

Lightweight

RunWAR has a small memory footprint (10 MB on disk, ~5M min heap), while leveraging enterprise grade server technology-- and the inner workings are simple. It starts up very fast and has very small overhead. It’s great for running sites on even limited hardware like a Raspberry Pi since it has a smaller footprint than, say, Tomcat.

Extensible

As small as RunWAR is, it still packs a lot of features. It can run any J2EE war including all recent versions of Adobe ColdFusion, Railo, and Lucee Server. It has a powerful Java-based web server built in that provides:

  • URL Rewriting

  • Virtual directories

  • Basic Authencitcation

  • Custom error pages

  • Full control of JVM args

  • System tray integration for managing servers

Standards Compliant

Runwar is powered under the hood by a project called Undertow which actually does all the work.

Undertow is a flexible performant web server written in java, providing both blocking and non-blocking API’s based on NIO. http://undertow.io

Undertow is what powers JBoss WildFly and is a very active project with tons of support for stuff like web sockets and HTTP 2.0 and has excellent performance.

Usage

RunWAR can be run from the commandline like so. This will give you all the available options:

$> java -jar runwar-${version}.jar

To start a quick server, it would look like this:

$> java -jar runwar.jar -war "path/to/war" --background false

or

$> java -jar runwar.jar -war "path/to/war" --port 8787 --dirs "virtualdir=/path/to/dir,virtualdir2=/path/to/dir2" --background false

CommandBox

Runwar also powers the servers for CommandBox, a CLI, REPL, package manager, and server for CFML developers.
