Just to report some Jetty 6 progress, the version in CVS can now handle webapps (you need to add xerces to
the ext directory).
The current main items on the todo list are:
+ Make it so that it autodetects lack of xerces and turns off validation.
+ implement security
+ implement the missing listeners
+ scaling of NIO select sets to thousands of connections.
So if anybody is itching to give it a go, or to contribute, etc. etc. now is a good time
to grab the CVS of JettyExperimental and give it a go. I'll probably do another alpha release
before the end of the week.
