Eclipse Jetty

Eclipse Jetty is an open source Java-based HTTP (web) server, which provides the latest Java Servlet API, HTTP/2 protocol, WebSocket support and more. Jetty is widely used within various projects and products (both in development and production) due to the following features:

  • open source and commercially usable
  • flexible and extensible
  • asynchronous
  • small footprint
  • enterprise scalable
