Hello everyone,

recently I read, the stand-alone Version of the Eclipse Help System ain't
using Tomcat anymore.
Instead of Tomcat it is using Equinox HTTP and Jetty now (since 3.3). As
far as I know, Jetty is using the first available port by default (as long
as the variable is set 0).

Are there any known problems by claiming the first available port? (for
example: conflicts with other webservers maybe?) How can I make sure, I
wont inflict any other running applications or webservers by using Jetty
in my standalone help?

Guess the only way doing this is to manually configure a free port on
every new system, where I want to use my application, or do I have other

More over I'd like to ask if anyone knows about articles or literature
about security issues by using Jetty in eclipse standalone Help System.

I am thankful for any advises or experiences.

Best regards,
