jetty Maven Jetty plugin


Example

This example applies to maven projects. Add the jetty-maven-plugin to build element as below.

<build>
   <plugins>
      <plugin>
         <groupId>org.eclipse.jetty</groupId>
         <artifactId>jetty-maven-plugin</artifactId>
         <version>9.4.0.M0</version>
      </plugin>
   </plugins>
</build>

Execute mvn jetty:run

It downloads necessary dependencies and starts the jetty server. Console shows below lines if the server has started-

[INFO] Started ServerConnector@7a31eb5d{HTTP/1.1,[http/1.1]}{0.0.0.0:8080}
[INFO] Started @10535ms
[INFO] Started Jetty Server

If you want to start jetty on different port-

Using system property during launch

mvn -Djetty.http.port=8181 jetty:run

Or permanently add to plugin configurations

<plugin>
  <groupId>org.eclipse.jetty</groupId>
  <artifactId>jetty-maven-plugin</artifactId>
  <version>9.4.0.M0</version>
  <configuration>
