icon for optional
Jetty is a prerequisite for using PDF export and VisualDiff (BlueSpice pro only). The steps listed here are optional and only required if you plan to use one or more of these services in your BlueSpice installation.


An alternative to Jetty is Apache Tomcat, which you can also find in the package manager of Debian. However, since Jetty works better, this is preferred in this documentation.

Installing Jetty

Install Jetty via Aptitude:

apt update; \
apt install jetty9; \
apt clean


To configure, open the file /etc/default/jetty9 in a text editor of your choice (vi, nano). Put the following line at the very end of the file:

JAVA_OPTIONS="-Xms512m -Xmx1024m"

Restart Jetty with the command service jetty9 restart.
