Hi Ralph,

Thanks for the awesome blog, am started working on it. Here I have one doubt whether the jetty based debug server is required to do build on state change or we can do it without using the server ? please do the needful

If you are a brilliant developer that knows what you do, you can get away without Jetty.

If you try to avoid Jetty and you are a mediocre developer, like I am, who does not get the code right, first try without debugging, you are likely going to waste everybodys time in this forum with pointles questions without necessary background information. I have had that too many times already - and I can actually tell when I interact with the ones ignoring my advice very easily. So if you decide to go that route, please let me know so I can ignore any further questions from you to not waste my time. Thanks!

Otherwise there are people out here that actually want to help the smart people out here with their questions, provided the question they have is understandable, provides the information needed and the answers are not ignored.

Should you use Jetty? Yes!
