SSL in Jetty plug-in

Yesterday I had a chat with my colleague. We talked about how the Maven Jetty plug-ins enable SSL. In my last article I described how to enable SSL in Tomcat, so now let’s see how to achieve the same result in the Jetty plugin.

It is a few simple steps.

At first we have to create a keystore with a server certificate:

keytool-genkey-alias-jetty6 keyalg RSA-keystore target / jetty-ssl.keystore-storepass changeit-keypass changeit-DNAME "CN = Your Domain Name"

Then modify the configuration of the Maven pom.xml:


    org.mortbay.jetty
    maven-jetty-plugin
    
        /context
        5
        
            
                8080
                60000
            
            
                8443
                60000
                ${project.build.directory}/jetty-ssl.keystore
                changeit
                changeit
            
        
    

In the previous configuration, we defined the connection on port 8080 and port 8443 for SSL connections.

If we did not want to manually generate a server certificate, you can use other Maven plugin as shown below.


    org.codehaus.mojo
    keytool-maven-plugin
    
        
            generate-resources
            clean
            
                clean
            
        
        
            generate-resources
            genkey
            
                genkey
            
        
    
    
        ${project.build.directory}/jetty-ssl.keystore
        cn=localhost
        changeit
        changeit
        jetty6
        RSA
    

Now, when we invoke mvn jetty: run command, plug-in automatically creates a certificate that is then used in Jetty.
