Downloading Jetty

Jetty Releases from Eclipse

Jetty 7 and later core components have moved to Eclipse. Some accessories (maven-plugin rpms, debs, hightide) will still be available from codehaus. Jetty 7 version numbers use four digits; the last digit may differ between Eclipse and codehaus.

An example of versioning: for jetty-server-7.0.0.X in the org.eclipse.jetty packages, there could be several matching releases of jetty-maven-plugin-7.0.0.y jetty-maven-plugin-7.0.0.y+1 from the org.mortbay packages.
