to keep things simple I would like to know if there is a little open source servlet engine out there. I am looking for something similar to ServletRunner from the early days. Servlet Runner was shipped along with the servlet libs by Sun. It was a stand alone application, simple and lightweight. It could be debugged and profiled like a normal application.
I don't like remote debugging and profiling, you know. Also it would ease the acceptence tests since no Cactus or something similar would be required.
Question: Does some knows a small servlet engine?
Requirements: Need a servlet engine to run a couple of servlets (Velocity, Spring, Custom Servlets) , no JSP, no JNDI etc needed.
A bit more than you need but small and fast
Check out HttpUnit
HttPUnit has a servlet runner class.
HttpUnit looks quite like something I would love to use. I will check it out. Jetty is nice but it is a bit more complicated. I would need two versions of configuration files.
Thank you both for your help! Thanks!
