Jetty module builder should completely configure web app context and servlet holder gbeans
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: GERONIMO-473
         URL: http://nagoya.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-473
     Project: Apache Geronimo
        Type: Improvement
  Components: web  
    Versions: 1.0-M3    
    Reporter: David Jencks
 Assigned to: David Jencks 


Currently the jetty integration does not fit into the separate build-configuration / load-and-start-configuration
pattern used by the rest of geronimo: the JettyWebAppContext gbean relies on the jetty xml
deployment code to construct the actual runtime configuration at runtime.  As a side effect,
we have no gbeans for servlets, so have no way to expose the jsr-77 statistics that jetty
can collect for us.

Instead, the jetty module builder should construct gbeans for the web app context and each
servlet directly, and the jetty xml configuration mechanism should be disabled.  As a side
effect, we will be able to easily construct specialized deployers for portlets and web services,
in which some non-servlet artifact is wrapped in a particular kind of servlet.  We can simply
construct a servlet holder gbean configured for this servlet, avoiding the need to munge xml
to fit these uses into normal servlet deployment.

Preliminary investigation indicates that it may be necessary to ask that some methods in Jetty's
WebAppContext be made public rather than package protected for this to be possible.
