: Why must a Java webserver be such a pain to set up?
Does Eclipse use Jetty as standard? I code using adobe dw. I want to get something free but…
Eclipse is just an IDE. You can program in any language with whatever webserver you want. Eclipse is a lovely program that I enjoyed for a while, until I decided I liked using Notepad++/gedit more due to less clutter.
My issue is that all Vaading and Jetty documentation wants to force me to use Eclipse. Which I could deal with if I didn’t have to then take my project and deploy it on a headless server, therefore shockingly making it unable to run Eclipse.
Who writes production software and then implies you require a GUI to run it? :(
