You already have my success story for Tomcat 6. So I thought 
I would try using Jetty.

1. - I have downloaded Jetty 6.
2. - java -jar start.jar etc/jetty.xml etc/jetty.xml
3. - Localhost:8080 brings up jetty sample site ok
4. - Download Maven 2
5. - Build Jetty with Maven 2, Build failed error which 
     I summised to be;jsessionid=70f6a0e1d75ac913d8b31

( 4 and 5, I was going to run 'mvn jetty:run' to use the plugin but this
Didn't work out.)

So in the end, using Full Jetty version 6.

1. 'forrest war' on a seed-sample site.
2. Copied WAR file to Jettys /webapp/ directory. (rather than configure
3. java -jar start.jar etc/jetty.xml etc/jetty.xml
4. http://localhost:8080/my-project/

All works fine.

So maybe you are using the forrest jetty or some other way of doing it.
Could you guide me through your scenario so I can try it?

I will test it shortly on a dispatcher site.
