Fedora Update Notification
2012-08-28 18:11:03

Name        : jetty
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 8.1.5
Release     : 5.fc18
URL         : http://jetty.mortbay.org/jetty/
Summary     : Java Webserver and Servlet Container
Description :

Jetty is a 100% Java HTTP Server and Servlet Container. This means that you
do not need to configure and run a separate web server (like Apache) in order
to use Java, servlets and JSPs to generate dynamic content. Jetty is a fully
featured web server for static and dynamic content. Unlike separate
server/container solutions, this means that your web server and web
application run in the same process, without interconnection overheads
and complications. Furthermore, as a pure java component, Jetty can be simply
included in your application for demonstration, distribution or deployment.
Jetty is available on all Java supported platforms.

Update Information:

This update fixes a bug that caused runtime files to be put under /tmp instead of /var/run, which was against FHS and caused jetty to stop working if temp files were removed after time.

  [ 1 ] Bug #845993 - Jetty unpacks deployed apps to /tmp which get cleaned up by systemd-tmpfiles
  [ 2 ] Bug #850176 - Introduce new systemd-rpm macros in jetty spec file

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update jetty' at the command line.
