I think jetty supports virtual hosts but we haven't implemented support 
for it in the geronimo integration.  I can never remember what they are 
:-( but if you remind me I might be able to suggest how to do it.

+100.  I don't think there is anything jetty specific in the jetty 
module builder.  If you can figure out how to add vhost support that 
can continue to be the case :-)

Were there some JACC requirements about contextID and virtual hosts?
