Basic Info for running Lucee

I am looking for some basic info for running Lucee.
I am not a java programmer. I am having trouble locating basic information
on how to run a program like Lucee. Every tutorial I find assumes a
knowledge of java applications. Is it absolutely necessary to know java to
set up a java server and run Lucee?
In my mind, if I look at Jetty or Tomcat or Glassfish or JBoss, et al.
there should be a page that says “To run your web application from a .jar
or .war file, do these basic steps… ; etc…” but I am not finding
anything like that. I am not sure whether I need to change my thinking on
how java works or I am choosing the wrong search terms but I thought
someone here could help me out.
I was thinking of following the OSX Installing Tomcat and Lucee using the
WAR file Instructions but those are not annotated. I am using FreeBSD on a
purely command line server, so I wasn’t sure if the instructions would
carry over.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank You

I solved it. I just wasn’t searching properly. I used jetty and found it
to be straightforward.
Thank you to the group

Well done for figuring it out, many wouldn’t :). I’d recommend a finding a
book on the fundamentals of how Java servlets and servlet containers work.
Not necessarily light reading, and not something required for getting
started, but something that will give you a huge headstart in understanding
how everything fits together. I’ll see if I can dig the book that I read on
the subject when I was wanting to grok it.On 27 June 2016 at 20:02, <@markmoellering> wrote:

Hi Dominic,

Did you find the servlet book you were referring to?

Kind Regards,
