Jetty provides an HTTP server, HTTP client, and javax.servlet container. These components are open source and available for commercial use and distribution.
Jetty is used in a wide variety of projects and products, and can be embedded in devices, tools, frameworks, application servers, and clusters.
The plugin calls the Jetty tool’s “start.jar” command line and passes the user-provided parameters in order to perform tasks, such as Start, Stop and deploy web applications into a Jetty server.
This plugin may be useful to deploy a webapp for test purposes.
