3.4 Jetty HTTP Server and Servlet Container 
Jetty is an Open Source HTTP Servlet Server written in 100% Java.  It is both a full featured HTTP/1.1 server
and a Servlet Container.  It is designed to be light weight, high performance, embeddable, extensible  and
flexible, thus making it an ideal platform for serving dynamic HTTP  requests from any Java application. 
Jetty can be used as a stand-alone HTTP server and servlet container or  it can be embedded in another java
application (eg. the JBoss EJB container  is using Jetty as it s prefered server and container solution). 
As a combined server and servlet container, both these functions run  efficiently in a single unix process.
Installation and configuration  is also simpler as a single application.
