Importing Jetty Source into Eclipse

  • Step 1: You need to have a recent maven2 installed in your environment. Then run:
      mvn eclipse:eclipse
    

This will generate all the files necessary to import Jetty into Eclipse.

  • Step 2: Run Eclipse. Select the File->Import... menu item. Select the Existing Projects into Workspace option and click Next. Type in or use the Browse button to enter the location of the modules directory in Jetty. For example, if Jetty is installed at /home/janb/src/jetty-6, then you would enter /home/janb/src/jetty-6/modules. Your dialog box should look like this:

  • Step 3: You should now have all of the Jetty submodules imported into your workspace, although with compilation errors. Your Eclipse should look like:

The maven generated Eclipse files will reference a variable called M2_REPO. You need to define that in your workspace. To do that, select the Preferences ... menu item. Select the Java->Build Path->Classpath Variables item from the dialog. Click New and enter M2_REPO in the Name: field. Enter or browse to the location of your local maven repository. Usually, this will be in your home directory as ~/.m2/repository. Click OK. A dialog box will appear warning you that you are changing the classpath. Click on the OK button to do a full build using the new variable you have just added.

  • Step 4: There is no step 4! You now have Jetty imported into Eclipse.
