I'm trying to configure Jetty with multiple domains, the problem I'm facing is that Jetty is running withing another server product called SmartfoxServer, so I'm not really sure if i can actually configure it the way i like.

This is my jetty.xml:

<Configure id="Server" class="org.mortbay.jetty.Server">
    <!-- =========================================================== -->
    <!-- Server Thread Pool                                          -->

I have the following folder structure:

  • www/
  • www/root/
  • www/domain2/

localhost:8080 loads root/index.html

localhost:8080/domain2/ loads domain2/index.html

In the root and domain2 folders, there's this WEB-INF/web.xml file:

<web-app>
    <display-name>default</display-name>
    <description></description>

    <welcome-file-list>
        <welcome-file>index.py</welcome-file>
        <welcome-file>index.htm</welcome-file>
        <welcome-file>index.html</welcome-file>
    </welcome-file-list>    

    <error-page>
        <error-code>404</error-code>
        <location>/errors/404.htm</location>
    </error-page>

    <servlet>
        <servlet-name>DefaultServlet</servlet-name>
        <servlet-class>org.python.util.PyServlet</servlet-class>

        <init-param>
            <param-name>python.home</param-name>
            <param-value>./lib/</param-value>
        </init-param>

        <load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
    </servlet>

    <servlet-mapping>
        <servlet-name>DefaultServlet</servlet-name>
        <url-pattern>*.py</url-pattern>
    </servlet-mapping>

</web-app>

I've tried adding:

<Configure class="org.mortbay.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext">
  <Set name="contextPath">/www/domain2/</Set>
  <Set name="virtualHosts">
    <Array type="java.lang.String">
      <Item>domain2</Item>
    </Array>
  </Set>
</Configure>

to the web.xml file and then accessing it with http://domain2:8080, but that's not working and I'm really not sure if this is the right way to do it. The information here: http://docs.codehaus.org/display/JETTY/Virtual+hosts is referring to a war, but I don't even have a war. And as said, I'm not even sure if it's possible, since I'm using Jetty within SmartfoxServer. Thanks for any help.

Can you clarify what "but that's not working" means? –  Tim Mar 3 '11 at 0:50
    
Sure, thanks for asking. So I'm adding the "org.mortbay.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext" code into the web.xml just above the </web-app> line. By nothing happens i mean that i cannot access the website through domain2:8080. Firefox loads forever, just as if i would enter AnyRandomString:8080. By the way I'm using Jetty 6.1.26. The version cannot be changed. –  iddqd Mar 3 '11 at 12:08

ok i solved it by:

  1. creating a contexts folder at the same level as the www folder.
  2. creating the following domain2.xml file in the contexts folder (don't forget to add the xml header)

'put the xml header here'

<!-- ==================================================================
Configure and deploy the test web application in $(jetty.home)/webapps/test

Note. If this file did not exist or used a context path other that /test
then the default configuration of jetty.xml would discover the test
webapplication with a WebAppDeployer.  By specifying a context in this
directory, additional configuration may be specified and hot deployments 
detected.
