Standalone Startup

Using the Start.jar

The easiest way to start jetty, is to use the start.jar that comes with the distribution.

 [jetty-distribution-7.0.0.M3]$ java -jar start.jar

 Usage: java -jar start.jar [--help|--stop|--version] [OPTIONS=option,...] [name=value ...] [config ...]

Command Line Option Help

--help
Help / Usage Information
--stop
Stop the actively running Jetty Server (started with a previous use of start.jar)
--version
Show the version information about Jetty
OPTIONS=option,....
OPTIONS allows you to specify the jetty classpath entries that you want to use when starting up Jetty.
OPTIONS lets you specify which bits and pieces of Jetty you want to use.
Default OPTIONS set is "default,*

Mode: *
Special mode for various required entries. (always present)
Mode: All
Special mode name that includes all resources found in the following other modes
Mode: default
Default mode of operation, includes dependencies to run the core Server with Servlet API, WebApp, Continuations, Deployment, Security, and a collection of useful Jetty Servlet Filters. (see Jetty/Servlets for more info)
Also includes the /lib/ext/ and /resources/ folders into the classpath
Mode: Server
Similar to 'default mode, with the addition of being able to configure the Jetty Server via XML configurations, and removal of /lib/ext/ and /resources/ folders.
Mode: ext
A meta mode that simply adds the contents of the /lib/ext/ folder to the classpath.
Mode: resources
A meta mode that adds the /resources/ folder to the classpath.
Mode: xml

Mode: jsp
Adds JSP Support
Mode: jsp-2.1
Adds JSP Support (Identical to jsp mode.)
Mode: plus
Adds JAAS and JNDI Support
Mode: annotations
Adds Java Annotations Support to WebApps and Servlets for configuring themselves
Mode: client
Adds the Jetty Async HTTP Client Support for Handlers, WebApps, and Servlets to use to initiate outgoing HTTP connections.
Mode: policy
Adds SecurityManager Policy Support.

Alternative Startup Techniques

Embedded Startup

Jetty can be configured and started as an embedded Web App Server from within another Java program. See Embedded Jetty for more details.

Eclipse Startup

Eclipse can be started up from within Eclipse using a variety of techniques, see Use Jetty with Eclipse IDE for details.

JUnit Startup
