The Eclipse Jetty Plugin is hosted on GitHub and is maintained by Christian Köberl and Manfred Hantschel. It's primary goal, is to provide a stable and consistent launch environment for large projects and development teams (reducing configuration needs per developer to a minimum).

It is based on the original Jetty Launcher by Geoffrey Longman (base for the well known Run Jetty Run plugin, too), although not a lot of the code base has survived.
