Both J2EE (1.4 and earlier) and Java EE (5 and later) define an  
environment that provides a wide range of services, including but not  
limited to, a web container, a CMP container, management, naming  
services, ORB services, and several other JSRs. There is no similar  
definition of a "web server" in this world.

I'm not an expert in Jetty, but it seems to be "just a component"  
that is intended for integration with other products to provide a  
complete solution. So it doesn't appear to be even close to a Java EE  

So you will usually be correct if you think of a web container as  
operating in a Java SE, not a Java EE environment.
