Spring / Spring Boot
How do I change from tomcat to other embedded containers?
Tomcat is the default embedded container when we specify web since spring-boot-starter-web dependency declares spring-boot-starter-tomcat as its dependency.
To change from tomcat to Jetty, we need to remove tomcat dependency by specifying the exclusion in pom.xml if you are using maven.
After removing the tomcat dependency, the next step is to specify the dependency for jetty.
Now build your project using maven and run your application to see that jetty in use.
