Running CONGO with Jetty

This document describes how to run CONGO using the Jetty servlet container.

1) Download and unpack Jetty to a working directory

Jetty is a lightweight application server that couples an HTTP server and Servlet container in one downloadable package. Stonekeep has tested this process with Jetty 6.1. Downloads and documentation are available on The Jetty home page.

2) Download the CONGO war file and place it in the 'webapps' directory under Jetty

See the instructions on Main for how to download the latest builds of CONGO.

3) Start jetty with bin/ start:

 yacht:jetty-6.1.22 dbs$ bin/ start
 Found JAVA=/usr/bin/java in JAVA_HOME=/
 Starting Jetty: STARTED Jetty Sat Nov 28 11:55:50 EST 2009
 yacht:jetty-6.1.22 dbs$ 2009-11-28 11:55:51.132:INFO::Logging to STDERR via org.mortbay.log.StdErrLog? 
 2009-11-28 11:55:51.213:INFO::Redirecting stderr/stdout to /Users/dbs/test/jetty-6.1.22/logs/2009_11_28.stderrout.log

4) Point your web browser at http://localhost:8080/congo- (naturally change the URL to whatever version you're using)

At this stage, see the 'Configuring CONGO' section on Main
