Java Web Server

This is a simple Java Web Server built lovingly from scratch as part of my 8th Light Apprenticeship.

Installation & Running

$ git clone git@github.com:rewinfrey/JavaWebServer.git

$ cd JavaWebServer

$ ant build

To run the server, please specify a port and directory you want the server to be bound to and to serve, respectively:

$ java -jar httpServer.jar -p <port> -d <directory/to/be/served>

Example:

$ java -jar httpServer.jar -p 8899 -d /Users/rickwinfrey/docs

If no port argument is provided the server by default binds to port 5813.

If no directory argument is provided by default the directory from which the server is started is served.

Running The Tests

Assuming the repo has been cloned:

$ ant build

$ ant test

The Java Server currently serves the following file types:

  • .html / .js / .css
