There are several differences between Jetty 6 and Jetty 7:
- Most classes have been renamed from org.mortbay to org.eclipse and sometimes moved to a different path. Find the new class names in the Jetty 7 JavaDoc. This applies to most settings in jetty.xml and web.xml.
- Jetty 7 comes with fewer plugins. Important extras such as JSP support are missing from the standard distribution.
- Jetty 7 includes several bugfixes. Example: Taking a port from xinetd did not work with Jetty 6 on my machine.
