This functionality is currently unmaintained, though it would be nice to find something that used it and wanted to improve it.

WTP Adaptor for Jetty 7.x/Jetty 8.x

The Jetty WTP Adaptor allows you to use Eclipse and its Web Tools Platform (WTP) to develop your web applications.


This document explains how use the WTP Adaptor for Jetty 7.x/Jetty 8.x to start/stop a WTP Dynamic Web Project (or external Web application) with Jetty by using Eclipse WTP. Eclipse JEE Helios is required. (Galileo is not supported.) The origin of this Jetty WTP Adaptor is the WTP Adaptor for Tomcat.

The WTP Adaptor consists of 3 plugins:

  • org.eclipse.jst.server.jetty.core: central bits and pieces of the functionality
  • org.eclipse.jst.server.jetty.ui: GUI components for integration with the Eclipse UI
  • org.eclipse.jst.server.jetty.ui.websocket: GUI components that provide a wizard that generates a Jetty WebSocket
