The clean install command is for building cloudstack, the jetty one is
for running the mgmt server. A typical development cycle looks like this;

1. You make changes for the first time, build the entire codebase once:
mvn clean install -P developer,systemvm (add a -D noredist if you're
working on non-oss components or -Dsimulator if you want to run
simulator too)

2. You run mgmt server:

mvn -pl client jetty:run

3. Now, you make minor/major changes to say a plugin or few components,
you need to stop jetty either by Ctrl+C (break the process or 2) or by;
mvn -pl client jetty:stop

4. Next, you need to rebuilt so as to test those changes;

mvn clean install -pl <path to plugin1>,<comma separated paths to other
components>,client

5. Run jetty again

Refer:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/How+to+build+CloudStack

In case of UI, as Gabor mentioned you may edit directly edit the UI from
client/target/generated-webapp or use something like Chrome
source/inspector to make changes and test it. That's another way to
cheat without building.
