This is the Jetty 6 HTTP server and servlet container. For more information about Jetty, please see the Jetty wiki: http://docs.codehaus.org/display/JETTY/ DIRECTORY LAYOUT ================ bin utility scripts and executables contexts Deployment directory for context descriptors contrib Source modules for optional jetty packages in the jetty-contrib repository, which has a larger more open group of committers etc Configuration files examples Example projects extras Source modules for optional jetty packages in the main jetty repository. javadoc Generated javadoc lib Generated libraries LICENSES License logs Request log and server log files modules Source modules for core jetty packages patches Optional patches for source modules pom.xml Build configuration for maven project-website Project Website README.txt This file resources Directory for resources to include on classpath start.jar Start jar for jetty VERSION.txt Version history webapps Deployment directory for standard webapps RUNNING JETTY ============= From the release, you can run the server with: java -jar start.jar and then point your browser at http://localhost:8080 and click to the test webapp, where there are some demos and more information. The start command above is equivalent to java -jar start.jar etc/jetty.xml which gives a configuration file on the commandline. An explicit configuration file (or multiple configuration files) may be given to select specific configurations. There is also a unix start script in bin/jetty.sh that can be used in /etc/init.d JETTY DEPENDENCIES ================== The Jetty build is rather large, because it bundles many optional packages. Jetty depends ONLY on a jre 1.4 runtime and the three jars found in the top level of the $JETTY_HOME/lib directory: servlet-api-2.5-$VERSION.jar jetty-$VERSION.jar jetty-util-$VERSION.jar For small foot print applications, these three jars can be trimmed of excess classes - we will soon automate generation of such minimal assemblies. The jars found in the subdirectories are all optional: jsp-2.0/*.jar (depends on java 2 (jre 1.4)) jsp-2.1/*.jar (depends on java 5 (jre 1.5)) management/*.jar naming/*.jar plus/*.jar xbean/*.jar The start.jar includes all these options if they are left in the lib subdirectories. The start.jar will also select the version of JSP to use based on the version of the jre available. RUNNING WITH JMX ================ The server can be run with JMX management with the command: java -jar start.jar etc/jetty-jmx.xml etc/jetty.xml This command adds the jmx configuration file before the server configuration. RUNNING WITH JETTY PLUS ======================= The server can be run as JettyPlus (JNDI, JAAS etc.) with the command: java -jar start.jar etc/jetty.xml etc/jetty-plus.xml This command adds the plus configuration file after the server configuration file, although you will first need to follow the instructions inside the etc/jetty-plus.xml file. RUNNING WITH OTHER CONTAINERS ============================= If you wish to use Continuations in other containers, the jetty-util.jar can be included in WEB-INF/lib and will provide waiting continuations BUILDING JETTY ============== Jetty uses maven 2 as its build system. Maven will fetch the dependancies, build the server and assemble a runnable version: mvn install Jetty itself only needs java 1.4, however to build JSP 2.1 support you need to use java5 AND you will need to have cvs installed. If you want to use java1.4, then you can use the jsp-2.0 modules instead of the jsp-api-2.1 and jsp-2.1 modules. DEPENDENCIES ============ The only real dependancy is the servlet api, so only the jars in the top level of the lib directory are needed to run Jetty (and they can be trimmed from many applications). The jars in the subdirectories of lib are all optional, but are included on the classpath by the standard start.jar mechanism
