JavaHandler

Nginx-Clojure is a Nginx module for embedding Clojure or Java or Groovy programs, typically those Ring based handlers.

There is a simple example about Java handler.

in nginx.conf

      location /myJava {
         handler_type 'java';
         handler_name 'mytest.Hello';
      }


In Hello.java

      package mytest;
      import static nginx.clojure.MiniConstants.*;
      import java.util.HashMap;
      import java.util.Map;
      public  class Hello implements NginxJavaRingHandler {
      
              @Override
              public Object[] invoke(Map<String, Object> request) {
                  return new Object[] { 
                          NGX_HTTP_OK, //http status 200
                          ArrayMap.create(CONTENT_TYPE, "text/plain"), //headers map
                          "Hello, Java & Nginx!"  //response body can be string, File or Array/Collection of them
                          };
              }
          }
