Re: [jetty-users] Instantiating a ResourceHandler in XML

You don't, there's no need to.

Just make a directory in ${jetty.base}/webapps/ like ${jetty.base}/webapps/foo/

and put content into it.
Now your content is being served from a ResourceHandler, at the context "/foo"

Also, a ResourceHandler is rather simple, and doesn't do many more advanced features that the DefaultServlet provides (like ETags, cache control, gzip compression, partial requests, ranged requests, gzip-precompressed logic, etc ...)

how does one instantiate a ResourceHandler using xml files?

I've tried the following but to no avail.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE Configure PUBLIC "-//Jetty//Configure//EN" "">
<Configure class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext">
  <Set name="contextPath"><SystemProperty name="aContext" default="/acontext" /></Set>
  <Set name="handler">acontext-handler.xml</Set>


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE Configure PUBLIC "-//Jetty//Configure//EN" "">
<Configure class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.handler.ResourceHandler">
        <Set name="resourceBase">/mnt/iiiparnex01_pdf/PDF/III/</Set>

Many thanks.
