Context Deployer

The ContextDeployer may be used to (hot)deploy an arbitrary Context or Web Application with Jetty specific configuration. To statically deploy only standard web applications at startup, use the WebAppDeployer.

Typically a ContextDeployer is defined in a jetty.xml file:

The ContextDeployer will scan the configurationDir directory at intervals of scanInterval seconds for xml descriptors that define contexts. Any contexts found are deployed to the passed contexts reference to a HandlerContainer (this is normally an instance of ContextHandlerCollection).

The deployment descriptors are in jetty xml format and are define and configure individual contexts. A minimal example is

This example creates an instance of org.mortbay.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext and sets the contextPath to be "/test" and the resourceBase to be "$jetty.home/webapps/test". Because the context used is a standard web application context, when started it will inspect the resourceBase for a WEB-INF/web.xml for further configuration.
