Re: [jetty-users] creating runnable wars with maven


unfortunately I am not familiar with this ProtectionDomain thing (and, admittedly, currently a little bit lazy). On the other hand I have some experience with deployments but cannot clearly figure out what you exactly want to deploy.

Could you please give some details?

Right now, for me it seems like you want to deploy a JAR, which has itself a nested WAR. The war spawns a Jetty server to which the embedded WAR shall be deployed, correct? Or was it all about just having the WAR in the first place and starting Jetty via a class file under unreachable WEB-INF/classes? If the latter, it might then work if you just put the Jetty starter stub to its usual JAR location within the WAR, i.e. without WEB-INF/classes.

But, obviously, I am a little bit confused right now... clarification is needed :)

Curious, is it possible to run an embedded jetty with an exploded war
file?  (This will make uploaded a specific jar to production faster
since the file payload is less than having to push the entire .war file)

    According to this article:

    When trying to run:

    java -jar myproject.war

    I get the main-class error:

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:

    According to that article the issue is: "The problem is easy to
    understand: when starting Java with -jar, it expects a "normal"
    file structure. So if the Main-Class is "de.jowisoftware.Main",
    Java looks for de/jowisoftware/Main.class. The classloader does
    not understand the concept, that, in war files all class files are
    in WEB-INF/classes. If jetty is included in the war file, it is
    included as a jar file, so the classloader has to support nested
    archives. The default one doesn't. Thankfully, there are solutions."

    What options do I have, is it basically how the author of the blog
    posts states?

    Or is the alternative ways to embedding jetty and then launching it?

    I have this:

    ProtectionDomain protectionDomain =
            String warFile =
            String currentDir = new

            WebAppContext webAppContext = new WebAppContext(warFile,

            resetTempDirectory(webAppContext, currentDir);
