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


Standalone Startup

Using the Start.jar

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

java -jar start.jar

To see the command line options for start.jar and help text for start.jar use:

$ java -jar start.jar --help

For a full description of start.jar features see Jetty Start.jar Feature Guide.

Alternative Startup Techniques

Embedded Startup

Jetty can be configured and started as an embedded webapp server from within another Java program. See Embedding Jetty Tutoral for more details. Once you have a main that runs Jetty, it is very easy to run this from your IDE, debugger and/or profiler.

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.
