How To Integrate Jetspeed2 with Jetty6
The only thing to be aware of is that jetty6 does not support hot deployment. This means that if you copy portlet webapps into the Jetspeed2
WEB-INF/deploy directory, you must restart jetty6 in order for them to be deployed into jetty6 itself.
How to Get the Jetspeed2 Demo running with Jetty6
Install Jetspeed2. These instructions were tested using the Jetspeed2 installer with Jetspeed-2.0.2.
Step 1: Configure jetty6
In a new jetty configuration file, or using the
etc/jetty-plus.xml config file from the distro, add the following:
- Define the Jetspeed realm:
- Define the Jetspeed datasource:
These instructions are for defining a datasource which uses Derby embedded. If you installed Jetspeed2 with a different database, you will need to provide the configuration for a different DataSource. You might find it helpful to look at the jetty6 User Guide for JNDI.
- Define the Jetspeed webapp and portlets
If you are using the
etc/jetty-plus.xml file, you don't have to do anything as all webapps in
webapps-plus will be automatically deployed on startup. If you want to create your own jetty config file, then you should do the same by copying and pasting this snippet, replacing the 2nd argument with the location of your deploy directory:
- Copy the shared jars
Copy all of the jars in your jetspeed installation's
shared/libdirectory to your jetty
Step 2: Setup Jetspeed2
- Copy the Jetspeed webapp
webapps/jetspeeddirectory from your Jetspeed installation directory into your chosen jetty deploy directory (which will be
webapps-plusif you're using the defaults).
Step 3: Start jetty6
- Now, start jetty6 using the config file you have been editing in Step 1.
- Wait for all portlets to be deployed - this can take some time depending on the rate of the Jetspeed auto-deploy scanner
Step 4: Restart jetty6
Once all the portlets have been deployed, you need to stop and restart jetty6 so it picks up the auto-deployed portlet wars from the previous step.
That's it, the Jetspeed2 demo is now installed for jetty.
