It does not seem to be a trivial task :-(

Thanks for the pointer, I guess I want to try
  "... the java wrapper provided by
   to provide jetty as an Win32 service."
since it comes with Jetty 4.2.25 (extra/win32)

Next problem is that I'm no ant expert and I'm not able to decypher
how to start 'forrest run' as a jetty app without using forrest.bat
Can anyone bridge the gap and give me a commandline like

 >java org.mortbay.jetty.Server ...

maybe plus some environment variables (CLASSPATH and the lot).
