This tutorial will walk you through how to run a web application on Jetty webserver directly from Eclipse.

Requirements:

  1. Install Jetty webserver
  2. Install plugin Run-Jetty-Run on Eclipse

As I mentioned on the tutorials listed above, I am trying to use Jetty instead of Tomcat. In this post, I will show how it is easy to deploy a web applicationon Jetty directly from Eclipse.

Steps:

1 – Create a Dynamic Web Project (you can right click on the Project Explorer view or go to File -> New…):

2 – Give a name to the project and click on Next:

3 – Click on Next:

4 – Check the option Generate web.xml… and click on Finish:

5 – This is how the project will look like:

6 – Select the project and click on Run Button -> Run Configurations…

7 – Double click on Jetty Webapp. It will create a jetty project configuration under the Jetty Webapp with the project name. Click on Run:

8 – Wait for the server to start:

9 – Test your application!

I also recorded a video with the steps above:

See? It is very simple!
