The jetty-base thing isn't related at all to the use of JAAS in the IdP.

No, JAAS is an option in the password-authn-config file per the above link, nothing to do with the container.

If you're using the container for JAAS, that would be RemoteUser authentication in the IdP.

You do NOT need container JAAS to make ECP work. The password flow will auto-consume basic-auth.
