Just Released: Jetty 9.0.0.RC0

Joakim Erdfelt-9
The Eclipse Jetty Project team is proud to announce the first Release Candidate for the new Jetty 9

        Jetty 9.0.0.RC0

The Java Web Server with support for SPDY and WebSocket.

Distributions Available at http://download.eclipse.org/jetty/

Java Artifacts Available on Maven Central:


Jetty 9.x Features:
 + Java 1.7 Compatible
 + Completely overhauled I/O layer
 + Servlet API 3.0
 + JSP 2.1
 + SPDY/3
 + New WebSocket API (RFC-6455)

Of special note for early adopters of Jetty 9.x:

 + The XML DTD has a XML id reference bug that forced us to create a new DTD to handle id references better.
    old way:
<!DOCTYPE Configure PUBLIC "-//Jetty//Configure//EN" "http://www.eclipse.org/jetty/configure.dtd">
<Configure id="Server" class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.Server">
  <Call name="addConnector">
      <New class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.ServerConnector">
        <Arg><Ref id="Server" /></Arg>
    new way:
<!DOCTYPE Configure PUBLIC "-//Jetty//Configure//EN" "http://www.eclipse.org/jetty/configure_9.0.dtd">
<Configure id="Server" class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.Server">
  <Call name="addConnector">
      <New class="org.eclipse.jetty.server.ServerConnector">
        <Arg><Ref refid="Server" /></Arg>

 + The Jetty WebSocket API has been reworked to better support future Extensions and to better align it with the upcoming JSR-356 (Java WebSocket API)
    Be aware that the old techniques that used a WebSocketConnection have been changed to a new Session object.

    Old Way:
      Listener Approach
      Annotation Approach

    New Way:
      Listener Approach
      Annotation Approach
