The EMO just posted the Jetty Project Proposal. Jetty is a Java-based web server and implementation of the Servlet Specification and is currently hosted at The Codehaus under the Apache 2.0 license.

The new project, which will fall under the Eclipse RT top-level project, has the following objectives:

  • Maintain an embeddable release of a HTTP server and servlet container.
  • Participate in the formation and implementation of future versions of relevant specifications.
  • Foster better integration with other open source projects, such as Eclipse Equinox, and various tooling efforts.
  • Provide a platform for other projects to create highly scalable solutions in their particular domains.

As many of you are already no-doubt aware, Jetty is the HTTP server that underlies the Eclipse help system. It is used in many other places, by a great many organizations, as well. Jetty is an exciting addition to the Eclipse project family; I invite you to take a look at the proposal and get involved!
