Jetty can be used in a variety of ways when developing in IntelliJ.

Embedded Usage

Another often used mechanism for developing in intellij is the embedded approach. This strategy involves writing a small main method that starts up jetty and deploys your servlets programmatically and you can control the starting and stopping of your webapp through normal runtime measures.

Testing Usage

A very popular approach to developing in intellij and one that we employ heavily in jetty is the usage of jetty with junit or the like where in @Before and @After there is a starting and stopping of a jetty server. If your interested in this approach look through the unit tests for things like jetty-server and jetty-client for a wealth of examples. Also the embedded-examples project as a number of simple examples for very common usage scenarios.
