Enhancement for Jetty SslSocket

Jiang, Tony



To compare with Tomcat, Jetty doesn’t support cipher suites through the configuration file of Jetty.xml.


I enhanced the source code of org.mortbay.http.SslListener in our project. But I don’t know how to contribute back to the community. It is a minor enhancement. After the enhancement, you can set the cipher suites thru the configuration file and force the SslListener to use the specific cipher suites to level the higher standard of security.


Hereunder is an example of the configuration file snippet.  


My question is how I can contribute back the enhancement to the community. The procedure on the website or Readme is not so clear.
