Jetty/Contributor Release Testing Check List

Testing a Jetty Release

To test a Jetty release, complete the following steps for each release you want to test:

  1. Download the staged release:
  2. For Jetty 7:
    wget[reponumber]/org/eclipse/jetty/jetty-distribution/[jetty-version]/ jetty-distribution-7.[jetty-minor-version].tar.gz

    For Jetty 8:

  3. Extract to a directory of your choice.
  4. Start jetty:
  5. cd [installdir] ; java -jar start.jar OPTIONS=rewrite etc/jetty-rewrite.xml etc/jetty-ssl.xml
  6. If there are no exceptions, proceed. Otherwise, investigate.
  7. Open http://localhost:8080/ in your favourite browser.
  8. You should see the test.war webapp.
  9. Go through ALL the tests and verify that everything works as expected.
  10. Verify that hot deployment works.
  11. touch [pathToJettyDistribution]/contexts/test.xml
  12. Verify that test.war gets redeployed in STDOUT.

    Testing CometD

    1. Clone git .
    2. clone git://

      git clone git://

    3. Edit pom.xml and update jetty-version and repository URL to match the current staged release.
    4.    <properties>
           <id>Jetty Staging</id>
    5. Build cometd:
    6. mvn clean installl>
    7. Be patient.
    8. Run the loadtest as it is described here: Keep the default values, but make sure that you raise the clients setting to 1000. Run the loadtest until JIT compilation time is close to a value of zero (about 10k calls).
    9. Make sure that the performance results are reasonably fast.
