Jetty Development can roughly be consider in two parts:
- Developing standard web applications that use only standard APIs, but that are deployed in jetty either for development and/or production. These web applications may use some jetty APIs, but only as normal WEB-INF/lib libraries.
- Developing web applications that use jetty JETTY APIs for either embedded or closely integrated purposes. This style of development needs jetty jars on the class path during development and runtime
