run jetty on dependency resolved war in gradle

  • test classes(such as selenium tests) are in an independent module(maven project, etc.).
  • have an external dependency(mave, ivy, etc) to war file(s)
  • want to run jetty on dependent war file(s)
Gradle can start up jetty on dependency resolved war file(s).

When you want to run your tests after jetty started, set "daemon=true" and make the test task depends on your new run-war task.

run multiple jetty in gradle

I have a selenium test suite for end-to-end web testing.
Currently, it is running on jenkins box but it is taking so long to finish all the tests.
So, next step is to parallelize the selenium tests.
As a first step, I need to start multiple jetty servers using different port.

With Gradle jetty plugin, I camp up how to run the multiple jetty servers before tests.
