Re: [jetty-users] Creating Jetty Modules - Required Files and Directories


You've brought up some good points. The good news is this is something I have been working on (as part of ) and hope to have published soon as the current information is not complete.

As for the specific functionality you mentioned with [files], the copy features are largely undocumented as they really exist as convenience methods to move things from Jetty_Home to Jetty_Base. 

Regarding extraction, I think it could be a good addition. I'd definitely recommend you enter it as a feature request on the project GitHub page ( If you are willing and able to produce the commit we'd certainly welcome it as well.

As far as I can tell, the only documentation for Modules is this page:

It would be helpful to have a module-creation focused page, presumably
in Jetty Development Guide, to describe the different options and
recommended approaches. (At the moment I'm poking through existing
modules to figure out how they work, but this isn't efficient.)

For the [files] section, the docs only list two options - directories
and downloads - but it appears possible to copy files using
basehome:src|dest and maven:group/artifact/version|dest too.

I'm guessing the documentation is simply out of date rather than these
being unsupported?

Another option that would be helpful is populating a directory from a
zip file (or any standard archive format).

So if you specified "|directory/" it would
create the directory and put the contents of the zip in it, or with
"extract:https://server/src.tgz|directory/" it'd do the same for a
