Java Micro Edition - Connected Device Configuration

Jetty 6 may be run on a JVM that supports Java ME Connected Device Configuration (CDC), such as the j9 VM from IBM.
To run on ME, you must:

  • Not use XML, as a SAX parser is not available. This means that you cannot directly use webapplications
    with web.xml nor jetty.xml to configure the server.
  • Not use NIO connectors. Use the SocketConnector instead.
  • Write a configuration class similar to the examples in the examples/embedded module.
  • Configure your own class path to include
    • servlet-api.jar
    • jetty-util.jar
    • jetty.jar
    • your configuration class(es).

An example of running the OneHandler example with IBMs J9 is

Code Block
j9 -cp lib/servlet-api-2.5.jar:lib/jetty-util.jar:lib/jetty.jar:examples/embedded/target/classes org.mortbay.jetty.example.OneHandler

NOTE! It appears that J9 is a superset of CDC. JVMs such as jbed with a strict CDC
implementation appear to need some patches to Jetty to remove some 1.4 language
features. These patches will soon be available in the patches directory.
