I'm a coldfusion developer and I have a new project where I have to deploy a war file on jetty. My was war file will be a part of a huge application and will be deployed within it. As long as it is a valid war file it will work seamlessly on jetty.

I created as small test file in colfdusion with server valiable dumps and one query that connects to oracle server and dumps first 20 records of a table and then from administraion panel I exported a war file. For one thing it was very big. Like 52 MB. Secondly when I deploy it on Jetty on the linux server I get error

HTTP error 503 could not instantiate coldfusion.bootstrap.bootstrapservlet

I have complete access to linux server so please let me know if I did somethng wrong or if I need to configure jetty to run coldfusion exported war files or may be if I need to do something eese to make this work. I need assitance imidiately because if I cand get coldfusion war files to work then I have to learn JSP and get this application ready. Trying to avoid JSP. Thanks.

You have to deploy coldfusion.bootstrap.bootstrapservlet first.
