Sometimes it can be usefull to use a WEB Application which was not created with Dynamic WEB Project (ex : you create your WEB Application with your ANT). You can start this external WEB Application.
For instance Jetty7 distribution provides a test.war which show you the features of Jetty 7 (WebSocket..). Here we will use this war (without creating Dynamlc Web Project) to start it.
Copy test.war from D:\Servers\jetty-distribution-7.1.6.v20100715\webapps

Open the launch, go at the Modules tab and click on « Add External Web Module » :

- document base : D:\tmp\test
- Path : /test (it's the context path)
Click on OK button, test module must appear :
If you go at http://localhost:8080/test/ This page show you Jetty home test war :
