Introduction

This howto covers how to start up Jetty as standalone, and links to pages which cover alternative methods of startup.


Steps

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

Command Line Options

 $ java -jar start.jar --help
 Usage: java -jar start.jar [--help|--stop|--version|--dry-run|--list-options|--secure] [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 Jetty version information
--secure
Enable Security: JVM Security Manager, Security Policies, Secure & Audit Logging
--dry-run
Print the command line that the start.jar generates, then exit.
--list-options
List available options, then exit.
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,*
NOTE: the "*" Option is always appended to the OPTIONS list.
DEBUG=true
Enable verbose debug output for the startup sequence

The exact JARs and classpath entries that will be activated for each option are listed in the Start Options reference .

Alternative Startup Techniques

Embedded Startup

Jetty can be configured and started as an embedded webapp server from within another Java program. See How to Embed Jetty for more details.

Eclipse Startup

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

JUnit Startup
