[jetty-users] War overlays in Jetty 9

I'm having a tough time figuring out how to use war overlays in Jetty 9.
jetty-overlay.xml is not included in the M3 /etc directory, and the
documentation at
is confusing and maybe out of date.

I just want to have a common.war file that all of my webapps share. If a
user goes to http://host/mywebapp/myfile.html and that file doesn't
exist in /webapps/mywebapp, it should get pulled from common.war.
Dynamic files like .jsps need to work as well.

I'd using embedded jetty.

(I'd also like to prevent each /mywebapp directory from having its own
/WEB-INF, but that's a separate requirement.)

So how do I create a common war file and tell the container to use it?
