>             Project: Maven Site Plugin
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: site:run

>            Priority: Minor
> With {{site:run}} it is possible to view the static content as if it was hosted on a
webserver. This issue is about looking for alternative implementation to do that. It should
be as simple as: map the context path to a specific folder. Now you should be able to view
it on a local port via a browser.
> with Jetty upgrade for security reasons in MSITE-829 (even if security reasons could
be discussed in "mvn site:run" scenario: we're not in a permanent webserver, just a developer
temporary one that should be limited to localhost requests handling), Java 8 is required when
our target currently is Java 7
> this is perhaps the right moment to look for a light http server that would not require
Java 8: there are many options available like
or any other idea
