  • Simple ServletEngine

    Hi there,

    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!
