Vita Rara: A Life Uncommon

Maven Jetty Plugin Logging


Categories: | | |

I've gotten Maven, Jetty, Spring, and JPA playing well together! I've ecstatic. Bye, bye JBoss. I don't know that I'll never run JBoss for development again, but I don't think it will be common.

Anyway, upon getting the Jetty Maven Plugin working (mvn jetty:run) it was logging too much debug information. Hitting one page ran out a 10,000 line buffer on my terminal. There was a simple quick fix though. Add a few properties to the plugin configuration in your POM file and voila, reasonable logging. The level is a bit more verbose than JBoss was, but that's ok for now. There's also guide to configuring log4j if you want to use that.
