Since we want to write test cases using an embedded Tomcat server, the
plugin org.eclipse.tomcat would be very helpful. However since Eclipse's
help system now uses Jetty instead of Tomcat, the org.eclipse.tomcat was
finally removed since Eclipse 3.4.

My question now is: does anyone remember why Eclipse migrated from
Tomcat to Jetty? maybe because it was not possible to migrate
org.eclipse.tomcat from Tomcat4.x to Tomcat 6.x?

Does anyone know if Jetty is faster compared to Tomcat (maybe this was a
migration reason)?

Or were insuperable ClassLoader problems the reason to get rid of Tomcat
? (see http://forums.java.net/jive/thread.jspa?messageID=173080)

Thanks for any ideas!

Probably better asked on Platform newsgroup, since they do Help, and
they controlled this server and change, but this change is documented in
the following bugs.
