Re: [equinox-dev] Jetty version for Luna?

We are looking to move up the Jetty 9 for Equinox.  But from the perspective of the http service impl in Equinox it is expected to work across multiple container implementations and Servlet specification levels.  Jetty 9 is attractive for several reasons as you mentioned.  Another benefit is to make sure the http service works on the latest spec release of Servlet.

WRT to plans.  The move to jetty 9 can happen at anytime, but need someone to step up to do the work.  Last I checked we do have some initial work done in https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=401784 but need someone to dust that one off and see if it is in shape to get into Mars.  The R6 impl of Http Whiteboard specification is coming along, but realistically it probably will not be ready until M4.

With Ray's Auge's joining as an Equinox committer (welcome Ray!) to
apparently work at least partially on HttpService, and the changes wrt
this bug [1], and the fact that we are now on the Mars release cycle, I
would like to re-ask some planning questions

1) Is it reasonable to expect that Jetty 9 will be used for Equinox in
Mars (rather than Jetty 8)?
2) Does this interact at all with Ray's work on supporting OSGi R6
HttpService specification?...i.e. is it reasonable to expect that R6
HttpService will be supported in Equinox (by jetty9)?
3) Assuming 'yes' to one or both of above, are there any plans WRT
timing of release for 1 or 2 (i.e. which Mars milestones)?

The primary reason these questions matter to me is that ECF's impl of
OSGi R6 Remote Services allows for the use of multiple modular transport
providers, and we've been requested by the community (and have some
contributions already) to use/depend upon websockets for a public RS
provider [2].   Naturally we would like to reuse the Jetty impl of
websockets to implement this provider, and use the latest/most
up-to-date websockets impl, which I assume is on the Jetty 9 stream.

As well, there is the potential that other RS/RSA users would like to
use R6 HttpService to create their own RS providers, and this would be
vastly simplified if an R6-compliant HttpService impl was available via
EF/Equinox/Jetty.   We would like to make this as easy as possible for
RS/RSA consumers.

In any event, just wanted to open re-discussion some of these changes,
now that we are well into Mars cycle.

FWIW, I will offer some technical collaboration and support (e.g. at
least testing in RS/RSA use cases for websockets and httpservice) for
technical work implied above.   ECF's resources for new commitments are
limited, however, as many are probably aware.
