RE: [equinox-dev] HttpService 2.3 implementation?

Hi Peter,
I've run into many similar problems as I like to use an embedded
HttpService for development.
I've created an enhancement request here
(https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=132555) to look at
supporting the  2.3/2.4 version of the Servlet API for the Equinox

I think there are two ways to go here...
1) Upgrade the existing HttpService's Servlet API support
2) Embed another servlet container and adapt it to the OSGi HttpService

There are quite a few changes between 2.1 and 2.4 and also writing a
servlet container is a non-trivial activity. I wonder if it might be
easier to embed and adapt an existing 2.4 container like Jetty (APLv2)
instead of directly doing the upgrade on the existing service.

I know Rob Walker and Richard Hall did something similar for Oscar and I
think Felix is probably inheriting that work.
Perhaps we can share something??

Anyway, from firsthand experience I know that by embedding Jetty it's
not an especially large job.
I'd be interested in working on a "clean" Eclipse implementation in the
incubator regardless if we upgrade the existing service or embed a
different servlet container.

Any thoughts?
