Re: [jetty-users] Dynamic Servlet Registration

Jetty 7 and Jetty 8 are nearly identical, with only minor differences required for Servlet Spec differences.

Jetty 7 = Servlet 2.5
Jetty 8 = Servlet 3.0

Now, Jetty 9, on the other hand, that was the big change, to Servlet 3.1 and the Async world it brings.
Starting in Jetty 9 we have the big change in the connectors.

I think the reason for that might have to do with the fact, that
Jetty 8 and higher needs a more or less complete rewrite of the
jetty-configuration-XML-files. 7.6 is the last version where e.g.
the old addConnector-methods worked with SelectChannelConnector
as parameter existed.

So updating to a newer version will lead to quite some work on
the Grails developers' side or the user base that has to change
their configuration files manually.
