Jesque-Web is a faithful re-implementation of the Sinatra web application, resque-web, that is a part of Resque in Java.

Jesque-Web is a Maven project built using Spring MVC and depends on Jesque, Jedis to connect to Redis, Jackson to map to/from JSON and SLF4J for logging.

Build Status

How do I use it?

  1. Download the latest source at:

  2. Edit the Redis connection settings for your environment.

  3. Start Jetty for testing: mvn -Pjetty-run clean test

  4. Build WAR for deployment to a servlet container: mvn clean package


If you are on Mac OS X, I highly recommend using the fantasic Homebrew package manager. It makes installing and maintaining libraries, tools and applications a cinch. E.g.:

brew install redis
brew install git
brew install maven
gem install resque

Boom! Ready to go!
