Like what we often do in tomcat, we can still static or hot deploy war file(packed or unpacked) to Jetty container, this tutorial will demonstrate how to deploy a war file to jetty?
When Jetty startup, it scans its $JETTY_HOME/webapps directory for web applications to deploy.
To deploy a WAR file, just copy warfile into $JETTY_HOME/webapps and then restart jetty to take effect.
You can restart jetty by using either the following command or double-click Jetty-Service.exe:
Jetty scans the $JETTY_HOME/contexts directory for runtime deployment.
To hat deploy a WAR file, copy warfile into $JETTY_HOME/contexts, no need to restart jetty, it will automatically deploy the war file to jetty’s container.
The URL of new web app is http://localhost:8080/warfilename/, where warfilename is the name of your war file.
