Using Jetty as Embedded Server in Spring Boot

For a Spring Boot Application, you can generate an application jar that contains Embedded Tomcat or Undertow or jetty. You can run a web application as a normal Java application! The advantage of this is you don't need the server pre-installed in the deployment environment.
 
Below we are showing a simple Spring Boot application example using Jetty as Embedded Server.

1. Maven/Dependency Management [pom.xml]

Remove the existing tomcat dependency on spring-boot-starter-web and added jetty dependency

</project>

 

2. Test Controller

 package com.knowledgefactory.knowledgefactorydemo;
 
import org.springframework.http.HttpStatus;
import org.springframework.http.ResponseEntity;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMethod;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RestController;

@RestController
public class Controller {
@RequestMapping(value = "/hello", method = RequestMethod.GET)
public ResponseEntity<String> listAllUsers() {
return new ResponseEntity<String>("Greetings from knowledgefactory"
HttpStatus.OK);
}
}

3. Spring Boot -Main Class

package com.knowledgefactory.knowledgefactorydemo;

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;

@SpringBootApplication
public class KnowledgefactorydemoApplication {
public static void main(String[] args) {
SpringApplication.run(KnowledgefactorydemoApplication.class, args);
}
}
 

4. Run

$ mvn spring-boot:run

5. Test

http://localhost:8080/hello
