jetty-env.xml

jetty-env.xml Root Element
Using jetty-env.xml
Additional jetty-env.xml Resources

jetty-env.xml is an optional Jetty file that configures JNDI resources for an individual webapp. The format of jetty-env.xml is the same as jetty.xml –it is an XML mapping of the Jetty API.

When Jetty deploys a web application, it automatically looks for a file called ` WEB-INF/jetty-env.xml` within the web application (or WAR), and sets up the webapp naming environment so that naming references in the WEB-INF/web.xml file can be resolved from the information provided in the WEB-INF/jetty-env.xml and jetty.xml files. You define global naming resources on the server via jetty.xml.

jetty-env.xml Root Element

Jetty applies jetty-env.xml on a per-webapp basis, and configures an instance of org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE Configure PUBLIC "-//Mort Bay Consulting//DTD Configure//EN" "http://www.eclipse.org/jetty/configure.dtd">

<Configure class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext">
 ..
</Configure>

Caution

Make sure you are applying the configuration to an instance of the proper class. jetty-env.xml configures an instance of WebAppContext, and not an instance of Server.

Using jetty-env.xml

Place the jetty-env.xml file in your web application’s WEB-INF folder.

 <?xml version="1.0"?>
 <!DOCTYPE Configure PUBLIC "-//Mort Bay Consulting//DTD Configure//EN" "http://jetty.mortbay.org/configure.dtd">

 <Configure class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext">

   <!-- Add an EnvEntry only valid for this webapp               -->
