What is Jetty?

Jetty is a pure Java-based HTTP (Web) server and Java Servlet container. While Web Servers are usually associated with serving documents to people, Jetty is now often used for machine to machine communications, usually within larger software frameworks. Jetty is developed as a free and open source project as part of the Eclipse Foundation. The web server is used in products such as Apache ActiveMQ, Alfresco, Apache Geronimo, Apache Maven, Apache Spark, Google App Engine, Eclipse, FUSE, Twitter's Streaming API and Zimbra. Jetty is also the server in open source projects such as Lift, Eucalyptus, Red5, Hadoop and I2P. Jetty supports the latest Java Servlet API (with JSP support) as well as protocols SPDY and WebSocket.

How to use this image.

Run the default Jetty server (CMD ["jetty.sh", "run"]):

docker run -d jetty:9

You can test it by visiting http://container-ip:8080 in a browser or, if you need access outside the host, on port 8888:

docker run -d -p 8888:8080 jetty:9

You can then go to http://localhost:8888 or http://host-ip:8888 in a browser.

The default Jetty environment in the image is:

JETTY_HOME    =  /usr/local/jetty
JETTY_BASE    =  /var/lib/jetty
JETTY_CONF    =  /usr/local/jetty/etc/jetty.conf
JETTY_STATE   =  /run/jetty/jetty.state
JETTY_ARGS    =
JAVA_OPTIONS  =
TMPDIR        =  /tmp/jetty

Deployment

Webapps can be deployed under /var/lib/jetty/webapps in the usual ways (WAR file, exploded WAR directory, or context XML file). To deploy your application to the / context, use the name ROOT.war, the directory name ROOT, or the context file ROOT.xml (case insensitive).

For older EOL'd images based on Jetty 7 or Jetty 8, please follow the legacy instructions on the Eclipse Wiki and deploy under /usr/local/jetty/webapps instead of /var/lib/jetty/webapps.

Read-only container

To run jetty as a read-only container, have Docker create the /tmp/jetty and /run/jetty directories as volumes:

docker run -d --read-only -v /tmp/jetty -v /run/jetty jetty:9

Since the container is read-only, you'll need to either mount in your webapps directory with -v /path/to/my/webapps:/var/lib/jetty/webapps or by populating /var/lib/jetty/webapps in a derived image.

Security

By default, this image starts as user root and uses Jetty's setuid module to drop privileges to user jetty after initialization. The JETTY_BASE directory at /var/lib/jetty is owned by jetty:jetty (uid 999, gid 999).

If you would like the image to start immediately as user jetty instead of starting as root, you can start the container with -u jetty:

docker run -d -u jetty jetty:9
