WAR Info

The class WarInfoProducerServlet is a servlet that returns a HTML page that lists the names of all Java components (jar files) that are contained in the web application, along with their version numbers. The HTML page also contains links to show the following files, in case they are present in the jar files:

  • /META-INF/release-info.txt
  • /META-INF/web-pages.txt

The purpose of this is to have an easy and quick means to find out the content of a web application that is running in test or production environments. The HTML page is loaded by using this URL: http(s)://[server-name]:[port]/[context-root]/WarInfoProducerServlet?all
The access to this page is restricted. The user needs to have the role developer to get access to the page.
