How to Use External Web Application

To read this section, please modify port with 8080.

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


and unzip it in the D:\tmp :


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


Fill the dialog like this :


  • 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 :


You can notice that http://localhost:8080/mywebapp/ is available too. You can add/remove as you wish any Dynamic Web Project or External WEB Application.
