Why u stick to Jetty , why not Tomcat...?  :)
Any technical explanation, just ur passion for Jetty...?

For lesser complex applications, G is fine, but for very large & complex
systems, better choose G to sub-ordinate some tasks of it.

But still G is special ..!

What I learned in the last 6 years with EJB's and webapps is that
performance is mainly founded in the design of the application.
So it can differ from one app to another. Some app servers prefer
the used design some not.
I like to have a server which is customizable and G is customizable,
not only in the way the server runs but also in the way I can
distribute it(look at "Little G" and plugins). G is easily
configurable even by the customer and I can run the same system
on the central server and also on a notebook (Little-G) with db and
app. The latter is a mandatory requirement by our customer.
I don't like that huge systems that can do everything and I need
only 30% of it for a particular project. Also G comes with Jetty :-)
Thats in short why I stick with G.
