  • Example Java Application with Embedded Jetty and a htmx Website
    3 projects | | 28 Mar 2024
    As described on "Jetty provides a web server and servlet container, additionally providing support for HTTP/2, WebSocket, OSGi, JMX, JNDI, JAAS and many other integrations. These components are open source and are freely available for commercial use and distribution."
  • Spring Boot Monitoring with Open-Source Tools
    5 projects | | 2 Dec 2023
    Manual instrumentation allows you to define your Spans within the code itself rather than relying on automatic instrumentation finding the entry point for a trace. Manual instrumentation is especially helpful for applications that don’t use an application server such as Tomcat, JBoss, or Jetty.
  • Security of Eclipse Jetty dependencies
    3 projects | /r/qztray | 2 Nov 2022
    So, 9.4.48 fixes the first two CVEs, but the last one doesn't mention 9.4 at all, so I'm not sure if that's left out due to EOL status for 9.4.
  • Choose the right Java runtime for the job (2020, Quarkus vs Open Liberty vs traditional application server)
    4 projects | /r/java | 7 Aug 2022
    If you're doing something pretty simple and need something really lighweight, however, you could go with something like Javalin or even use Jetty directly (the HTTP server which powers Javalin and many other frameworks by default). It's not that hard to do that and that's what I actually would do myself for almost everything... the fewer moving parts you have in your application, the better chances you have of keeping everything up-to-date and the less chance to mess up (with a caveat: bigger frameworks may give you secure defaults that if you're not experienced enough you may not even know about, so it may be better to not go low level if you're new-ish to running web applications securely).
  • The 12-Factor App Building Methodology
    3 projects | | 2 Jul 2022
    Example: Little Johnny was developing a Java web app and thinking about how he would configure Tomcat to listen to requests and redirect the data into his app... until he remembered this would violate Factor 7! Instead, he decided to declare Jetty as a dependency, keeping the HTTP service inside the app instead of configuring an external web server and then injecting its functionalities. Now, whenever he wants to instantiate another server for this app, all he has to do is installing dependencies and running the app, isn't it convenient?
  • Looking for maintainer for jvm-brotli
    7 projects | /r/java | 18 Apr 2022
    Hi /r/java! Jetty is considering implementing dynamic Brotli compression, but the current JVM wrapper for Google's Brotli (jvm-brotli) is somewhat ... abandoned.
  • Non Spring users what are you using ??
    7 projects | /r/java | 2 Nov 2021
    Multiple applications in the same JVM? Wildfly, Tomcat, Jetty.
  • Packaging and deploying Spring Boot applications as WAR files
    4 projects | | 2 Sep 2021
    Download Eclipse Jetty from the project website. Make sure to download the correct version, depending on the Java and Servlet API versions that your application uses. For example, in the case of Vaadin applications, download Eclipse Jetty 9.
  • Clojure Ring เบื้องต้น

  • Can someone help me understand ring's async handlers (specifically, with Jetty)
    4 projects | /r/Clojure | 30 Mar 2021
    I've now got this working, sort of, so thank you for that! The sort of is because I'm getting the response I expected, but I'm also getting an exception from Jetty for every request. I've followed your pattern as given above, and when I curl the server I get the expected data back. But the REPL I'm running it in for local dev also gives the error Exception in thread "async-dispatch-[0-9]+" org.eclipse.jetty.http.BadMessageException: 500: No version. Googling that leads me to, which seems to suggest that something else is attempting to handle the message a second time, while my handler is parked for a response in the go block? If I wrap the (a/go ...) in (a/, to effectively force it to be synchronous again, the error goes away.
