Steps

Download the Binary

Download the latest Jetty core component binary from the Jetty downloads page.

Unpack the Binary

Unzip the binary; it will be extracted into a directory called jetty-distribution-VERSION. Put this directory into a convenient location. The rest of the instructions in this wiki will refer to this location as either JETTY_HOME or as $(jetty.home).
