Installing and configuring Jetty

Complete the steps on this page if you're installing Web Services and Applications version or earlier; Jetty is embedded in newer versions of Web Services and Applications.

Jetty version 9 is a mandatory component that must be installed and configured on each Web Services node prior to starting the installation and configuration of Web Services and Applications.

Jetty version 8 is no longer supported by Web Services. For more information about Jetty, refer to the Jetty documentation.

Install Jetty


  1. Download the latest Jetty version available in stable-9 from Eclipse.
  2. Copy the Jetty archive to the installation directory. For example: /opt/jetty
  3. Use a tar utility to extract the files. For example: tar -zxvf jetty-distribution-9.2.1.v20140609.tar.gz
  4. Start Jetty to confirm it has been installed correctly:
  5. [java_path]/java -jar [jetty_path]/start.jar 
  • [java_path] — The path to your Java installation. For example, /usr/bin.
  • [jetty_path] — The path to your Jetty installation. For example, /opt/jetty.
  • Test Jetty by entering the following URL in a web browser: http://[host]:8080
    • [host] — The host name (fully qualified domain name) or IP address where you installed Jetty.

    You should see a 404 error page from Jetty.

  • Stop Jetty by pressing Ctrl+c.
  • Important
    If you plan to use the Gplus Adapter for Salesforce or WebRTC for Workspace Web Edition, you should also configure Jetty for SSL.
