Jetty + DataSource + JTA
April 18, 2010

Working on my next post about Drools Flow Work Items I wanted to have a one click example. This example involves a web application so I started with Jetty which fits perfect for a mvn jetty:run example. In the standalone example we run our own JNDI directory provided by Bitronix. Jetty has JNDI directory embedded so we have to register the datasource and the transaction manager. Doing this task for a totally jetty noob could be a little difficult and time consuming. So, hoping nobody has to spend too much time on this, I’ll try to summarize the steps I did to make this.
