Powerful feature in Gretty 0.0.24 – full support of Spring Boot 1.1.0

Today is a wonderful day: Spring Boot 1.1.0 was released and I released Gretty version 0.0.24.

Gretty is a feature-rich gradle plugin for running web-apps on Jetty. It supports multiple Jetty versions (7, 8 and 9), multiple web-apps and many more. It wraps Jetty functions as convenient Gradle tasks and configuration DSL. A complete list of Gretty features is available in feature overview.

There is new powerful feature in Gretty 0.0.24: it supports running Spring Boot web-apps out-of-the-box. All Gretty features, including (but not limited to) debugging, code coverage and integration tests, also apply to spring-boot web-apps.

Simplest Gretty setup with Spring Boot:

You get Gretty as maven artifacts at jcenter and maven central under the group “org.akhikhl.gretty”.
