I find the Jetty docs, as Peter said, pretty bad in places. I don't know
if this is one of them. As software, it's fine, but there's a lot of
wading through bad info. Tomcat has the opposite problem.

Anyway, I run it alone, without Apache, and it's been pretty good so far.
The only glitch now is something I don't think Jetty is responsible for.

I would do some load testing with mod_proxy_ajp before giving up on that
way of doing it if you want to use Apache.
