Jetty is a free and open source project, developed as part of the Eclipse Foundation. It provides a pure Java-based HTTP (web) server and a servlet container for static and dynamic content serving either from a standalone or embedded instantiations. Jetty also ensures the support of SPDY, WebSocket, OSGi, JMX, JNDI, JAAS and other integrated technologies, each of which is open source and available for commercial use and distribution. Thereby it makes Jetty rather flexible, extendible, and embeddable.
Our platform provides Jetty 6 server by default. And with Jelastic’s cartridges approach you are able to work with the latest versions of this application server: 8th and 9th. See the differences in specifications’ implementation in the table below:
