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”.

Gitbucket – your own github-like web-application without a hassle

Meet gitbucket – your own github-like web-application, requiring minimum configuration:

https://github.com/takezoe/gitbucket

Features:

  • out-of-the-box HTTP access to git repositories (in browser and from command line)
  • web-based user management
  • web-based repository management
  • issue management, pull-requests, wiki, etc.

Not yet implemented features:

  • out-of-the-box SSH support (or integration with SSH-supporting solutions like gitolite)
  • online editing

My impression: this is very interesting application that I will certainly use as soon as missing features get implemented.

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!
