Gretty 1.1.3 is out!

I’m happy to announce that Gretty 1.1.3 is out!

New in Gretty 1.1.3: virtual mapping of gradle dependencies (of the web-application) to “WEB-INF/lib” directory. This feature is needed by some web frameworks accessing jar files in “WEB-INF/lib” (e.g. Freemarker).

Special thanks to @saladinkzn (Timur Shakurov) for introducing this nice feature.

Up-to-date Gretty sources are always available at:

Gretty documentation:

All Gretty releases are also available as maven artifacts at jcenter and maven central.

Gretty 1.1.2 is out!

Today I released Version 1.1.2 of Gretty – feature-rich gradle plugin for running web-apps on embedded servlet containers: Jetty 7, 8, 9 and Tomcat 7, 8.

Gretty 1.1.2 brings:

  • new feature: webapp extra resource bases.
  • new feature: webapp filtering.
  • better start/stop protocol, gracefully handling attempts to start Gretty twice (on the same ports). There should be no hanging processes after such attempts anymore.
  • lot of bug fixes

You can get Gretty in sources from:

All Gretty releases are available at jcenter and maven central under group ‘org.akhikhl.gretty’.

You can start using gretty right away, with a single line of code in your “build.gradle”:
