Access to the HttpServletRequest is discouraged, as not all mechanisms for creating a WebSocket will even have a HttpServletRequest.
(Various muxed websocket connection techniques like WebSocket over SPDY and even the mux-extension would have a websocket be created without a HttpServletRequest object being created for it)

Using Jetty 8, I also use the request object to make sure only authenticated users connect, by checking the authorization cookie. 

How would I do that in Jetty 9?

Took a look at the API, and I can see that while the HttpServletRequest object is not available, UpgradeRequest is, which contains access to most of the same stuff.

So this shouldn't be a problem, for me at least.

Doesn't all websocket connections need to be initiated by an HTTP request? If so, it would seem natural to have access to the request in some form or another.
