<h4 id="jetty">Jetty Java HTTP Servlet Server</h4>
<p>
Jetty is a small, pure-Java, open source HTTP server that supports the
2.3 Servlet spec and JSP 1.2. Jetty can be downloaded from
<a href="http://www.mortbay.com/jetty">http://www.mortbay.com/jetty</a>.
</p>
<p>
Struts WAR files run nearly straight out of the box when placed
underneath Jetty's webapps directory. The one additional step needed
is to add an entry for each WAR file to the Jetty server configuration
file in order to map the appropriate request paths to the added Struts
web applications (using "&lt;Call name="addWebApplication"&gt;...").
</p>
<p>
So for example, if you have copied the WAR files that come with the
Struts binary distribution into a subdirectory of the
"%JETTY_HOME%/webapps" called "%JETTY_HOME%/webapps/struts" so that
you have:
</p>
<pre>
- %JETTY_HOME%/webapps/struts/struts-documentation.war
- %JETTY_HOME%/webapps/struts/struts-example.war
- %JETTY_HOME%/webapps/struts/struts-exercise-taglib.war
- %JETTY_HOME%/webapps/struts/struts-upload.war
- %JETTY_HOME%/webapps/struts/struts-blank.war
</pre>
<p>
And you want to run Jetty using the demo.xml configuration file that
comes with Jetty, just add the following block to demo.xml, anywhere
after the Listeners are declared.
</p>
<pre>
&lt;!-- Jetty config for Struts BEGIN --&gt;
&lt;Call name="addWebApplication"&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;/struts/struts-documentation/*&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;&lt;SystemProperty name="jetty.home"
default="."/&gt;/webapps/struts/struts-documentation.war&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;&lt;SystemProperty name="jetty.home"
default="."/&gt;/etc/webdefault.xml&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg type="boolean"&gt;false&lt;/Arg&gt; &lt;!-- if true,
expand war in temp dir --&gt;
&lt;/Call&gt;
&lt;Call name="addWebApplication"&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;/struts/struts-example/*&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;&lt;SystemProperty name="jetty.home"
default="."/&gt;/webapps/struts/struts-example.war&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;&lt;SystemProperty name="jetty.home"
default="."/&gt;/etc/webdefault.xml&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg type="boolean"&gt;true&lt;/Arg&gt; &lt;!-- if true,
expand war in temp dir --&gt;
&lt;/Call&gt;
&lt;Call name="addWebApplication"&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;/struts/struts-exercise-taglib/*&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;&lt;SystemProperty name="jetty.home"
default="."/&gt;/webapps/struts/struts-exercise-taglib.war&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;&lt;SystemProperty name="jetty.home"
default="."/&gt;/etc/webdefault.xml&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg type="boolean"&gt;false&lt;/Arg&gt; &lt;!-- if true,
expand war in temp dir --&gt;
&lt;/Call&gt;
&lt;Call name="addWebApplication"&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;/struts/struts-upload/*&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;&lt;SystemProperty name="jetty.home"
default="."/&gt;/webapps/struts/struts-upload.war&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg&gt;&lt;SystemProperty name="jetty.home"
default="."/&gt;/etc/webdefault.xml&lt;/Arg&gt;
&lt;Arg type="boolean"&gt;true&lt;/Arg&gt; &lt;!-- if true,

&lt;/Call&gt;
&lt;Call name="addWebApplication"&gt;

&lt;Arg&gt;&lt;SystemProperty name="jetty.home"

&lt;Arg&gt;&lt;SystemProperty name="jetty.home"

&lt;Arg type="boolean"&gt;true&lt;/Arg&gt; &lt;!-- if true,
expand war in temp dir --&gt;
&lt;/Call&gt;
