Lightweight servlet container for production use
I use Tomcat in production.
Are Jetty and Winstone (What is a lightweight, fast, java servlet container?) suitable for production use?
I'm happy to let go of features in return for simplicity. Servlets and filters are probably sufficient and the server isn't heavily loaded, so interested to experiment with running it on a minimalist platform. Sticking with Tomcat is also fine.
Short Answer: Yes
Long Answer: Yes, of course...many companies use jetty in production, either in its distribution form or embedded into their applications. In fact, I just updated this jetty powered page on the eclipse site.
