You don't need to, and companies have to plan for this.

Others may chime in, but in my view it's not Jetty (or any container)
that should provide those modules.
If you need them in your application, just put them in WEB-INF/lib.
Or, with Jetty, you can easily write a Jetty module that puts them in
the server classpath if you really need them that way.
