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”.

Full Gretty sources and examples are available at https://github.com/akhikhl/gretty

Full Gretty documentation is available at http://akhikhl.github.io/gretty-doc/

Meet Gretty: advanced gradle plugin for running web-applications under Jetty and Tomcat

I created little gradle plugin for running web-applications under Jetty 8.1.8.

The main advantage for a programmer is that now it’s possible to use servlet-api 3.0 and higher (under standard gradle-jetty plugin it was not possible, because jetty was too old).

Full sources, documentation and examples here:

Update 24.02.2014:

Now gretty supports jetty 7, 8 and 9 and servlet API 2.5, 3.0.1 and 3.1.0, as well as it brings many new interesting features!

Update 07.10.2014

Now Gretty supports Tomcat 7 and 8, as well as SpringBoot, spring-reloaded and jacoco!
