      Description

      Hudson recently switched to using Jetty as an embedded servlet engine. It has a very small size, and very very good performance.
      Put bluntly, the current use of Winstone SUCKS, and due to its threaded design will cause performance to slow to a crawl at 240+ requests a minute even on high end hardware with aggressive varnish caching. At the same time using an external Java EE container isn't that easy, so by following hudson and switching to Jetty we get the best of both worlds.

      Thanks
