JavaScript servlets

Today, I checked in support for running ESXX as a inside servlet a Java EE application server. Why, someone may ask, run an application server within another application server?

Well, for starters, it allows you to use ESXX with your existing infrastructure and tool set. If you're already using an app server such as Glassfish or Tomcat, you can add modules powered by ESXX by rebuilding the war archive. Simply add your JavaScript code files, change the http-root parameter in web.xml, rebuild and deploy the generated esxx.war archive on your app server.

More work is required, but if you're interested to try it, just check out trunk from the Subversion repository at and type ant jee-war to build your own esxx.war archive. By default, it serves the ESXX example applications.
