GWT 1.6 – Tomcat or Jetty ?

18 Oct

Bruce Johnson (tech lead of the Google Web Toolkit ) is asking the community if it would rather have Jetty or Tomcat as the hosted mode embedded HTTP. Unfortunately, I do not know Jetty enough to have an opinion. But if you know both Jetty and Tomcat, you should not hesitate to participate in this debate.

The GWT team has started putting together a 1.6 roadmap, which we’ll publish as soon as we have it nailed down. Two of the areas we want to work on for 1.6 are some improvements to hosted mode startup time and a friendlier output directory structure (something that looks more .war-like).

As part of this effort, we’ve all but decided to switch the hosted mode embedded HTTP server from Tomcat to Jetty. Would this break you? (And if so, how mad would you be if we did it anyway?)
