News: Jetty shows strong growth

  1. Jetty shows strong growth (22 messages)

    The latest Netcraft Web Server Survey has again shown good growth for the Jetty Servlet Server. Jetty has gained 12th place in the league table of all known servers and has passed the 80% mark compared to tomcat for the first time (meaning that Jetty has at least eight deployments for every ten Tomcat deployments.) Of course many more instances of the servers are deployed on private networks, are some of the 3 million servers that don't advertise their ID, or are proxied behind the 83 million Apache servers. None the less, the servers that are directly connected is an interesting and important measure. Jetty has averaged 2500 new servers every month for the last decade! In the last 12 months, this has accelerated to over 9000 new public Jetty servers every month. Given Jetty's flexibility and embeddability, jetty would have a healthy ratio between public and hidden servers. Jetty's inclusion in the Eclipse IDE alone would provide 100's of thousand more users and it is used and distributed with many more projects and applications. Jetty's progress has been charted and analysed in my blog.

    This is no surprise for anyone who has ever used it. It's simply faster, more lightweight and much easier to configure than Tomcat. Great product!

    +1 My personal choice.
  4. Re: Jetty shows strong growth[ Go to top ]

    I was thinking in giving it a try, as an alternative to Tomcat. Now... is http://jetty.mortbay.org/ the main Jetty website? Geez.... not exactly one of my best web experiences of late... Appart from the unpolished (and rather ugly IMO) look, with those white spaces, the iframes with scrollbars... (this in Firefox; in IE 6.0 the iframes give me an error message) ... the download link leads to a "not found" message... ... no "contact" mail or form at sight (even for the webmaster, to inform these problems) ... no quick links to some "community" (only commercial support) ... and the docs... a wiki as chaotic as one can expect from a wiki, with two ads for commercial support in each page... I will give it a try, anyway( I am used to cope with the rough edges of open-source projects) but this is not very encouraging.

    You are right. The page is all jacked-up right now. I don't remember it being like that in the past. I wonder what's going on.
  6. Jetty shows rubbish website[ Go to top ]

    Ah - sorry about the website. It's automatically generated from our build and we obviously didn't check it too closely last few releases. Other than the javadoc and xref the main jetty pages are pretty static and really just launch you into the jetty wiki, where we put most of our documentation effort. But yeah... the jetty home page is looking a little dated, even when it is generated correctly. I'll see if we can get some round corner goodness to surround some of the smaller, faster, better, friendlier platitudes that the home page presents. Meanwhile, jump to the wiki: http://docs.codehaus.org/display/JETTY/Jetty+Wiki
  7. Re: Jetty shows strong growth[ Go to top ]

    Hernan, Thanks for pointing out that the iframes were broken. Fixed now. And thanks also for making me look closer at the wiki site - it turns out that the codehaus style sheets had changed and borked our page templates a bit. All looking a little prettier - if not exactly beautiful - now. Jan

    +1 here too. Also its embeddability (not sure that is a work) is fantastic. It take a few lines of code and a couple jars to have the fully power of Jetty built into your application.

  11. tomcat behind apache[ Go to top ]

    Does the survey take into account that many tomcat installations are installed as servlet engines behind tomcat ? - Ron

    behind Apache?
  13. behind apache?[ Go to top ]

    The netcraft survey is not able to take into account servers running behind apache or other reverse proxies/load balancers. Nor is it able to see servers running on private networks or embedded in products etc. So it is not a complete measure of all the server installations. However, it does measure how many installations are using the HTTP layer directly exposed on the internet. Thus while it does not give a complete picture, the numbers are still a valuable measure.
  14. Jetty just works...[ Go to top ]

    I've been using Jetty for the past 6+ years. Jetty is just so well engineered and useful on some many levels, it's truly amazing that people even use Tomcat. Damn good work, Greg!
  15. Re: Jetty shows strong growth[ Go to top ]

    I deployed almost 400 embedded instances of Jetty in 2007. Its a great piece of both software and documentation. It has even an OSGi bundle.
  16. Re: Jetty shows strong growth[ Go to top ]

    +1 In addition to being easier to embed I appreciate a lot that the developers seem to have less of an "it's a feature not a bug" attitude...
  17. +1 from me too. I have been using two instances of Jetty server on production and so far it never needed explicit restart. Till now, I had to kill the server only during deployment of new release. A wonderful lightweight container!
  18. Re: Jetty shows strong growth[ Go to top ]

    i had been using jetty for many years before switch to tomcat 5.5 tomcat5.5 is also very small and actually faster then jetty5 (in heavy load case) anyway, i still like jetty and definitely like to try jetty6 again!
  19. Jetty Kicks Ass[ Go to top ]

    Yeah I love Jetty. Documentation for the new version is a litte spotty, but its a very well enginered HTTP/JSP server that couldnt be easier to embed
  20. Jetty is the best option for code development. Using Eclipse I can change my code at runtime without restart/republish my application. Furthermore Jetty starts in few seconds, while Tomcat is slower at startup. I never compared run-time performance. +1 for Jetty! bye, Luca Garulli Blogging on: http://zion-city.blogspot.com http://www.AssetData.it http://www.RomaFramework.org - The new way to build applications http://www.OrienTechnologies.com - Light ODBMS, All in one JDO solution

    +1 for Jetty!
    <</blockquote> Actually while I use jetty often I must say the startup times of both Tomcat and jetty nowadays are pretty up to par in their latest incarnations the biggest issues nowadays are not the server startup times anyway. If you have 20-30 seconds startup time, the app server both being it Tomcat or Jetty are just around 3-4 seconds if at all. Anyway congratulations to the Jetty team for this success.
  22. Orion Server[ Go to top ]

    What ever happend to the Orion Server. The product web page is still out there, (http://www.orionserver.com/) and I know this product was licensed by Oracle to form the base of their Oracle App Server. Back when I used it, is was almost comical (in a good way) to compare its speed and memory profile to websphere. Startup in 3 seconds, low memory usage, fast etc. Anyone use or using this product? Could compare favorable to Tomcat/Jetty.
  23. Re: Jetty shows strong growth[ Go to top ]

    Jetty is really nice and very easy to setup. But if you want to configure something that's not default, the documentation can be lacking or incomplete. For example, I wish their virtual host page showed a COMPLETE configuration file instead of just snippets.
