Use Jetty!

I was somewhat shocked to learn that a lot of my colleagues are not even aware of the existence of jetty. I have been using it for quite a while. It is the best thing you can do during development – and no jboss is not a good thing it is after all quite similar to websphere. Arguably jetty is also the best thing in production.

As I will die one day, I can’t be bothered to use anything else, because there are no insights to be gained and no problems to be solved by using anything more “elaborate”.

    I’ve been trying to introduce Jetty at work and they’re not having any of it. Shame, it really is lovely.

    Are you sure? http://www.adam-bien.com/roller/abien/entry/are_plain_old_webcontainers_still

    Looks like It’s easier to use EJB3.1 + JPA, then just Servlets(Struts, JSF, whatever) + POJOs

    ~90% of all transactions between banks (and credit cards) in Norway have been powered by Jetty since early 2008. Commercial appservers had too many bugs. http://www4.java.no/web/files/moter/2008/november/Integration%20without%20buzzwordware.pdf (most slides are in Norwegian)
