would it be fair to say then, that JBoss/Jetty does not take a long time to start up,but rather, your application does ?
I guess you need to optimise/rearchitect your application.
Sorry for answering so late! I think no, because nothing is executed in my application at startup of JBoss - and JBoss really takes time to startup.
Does JBoss or JETTY scan all directories and files when it starts?
