[GRADLE-1901] Allow access to gradle's internal jetty classes for customization of Jetty tasks Created: 08/Nov/11  Updated: 16/Jan/17  Resolved: 16/Jan/17

See support ticket #1056. Classloader isolation means that it is no longer possible to create Jetty connectors etc for customization of the Jetty tasks. Adding jetty to the buildscript classpath is a fragile solution as it isn't possible to know up-front the version of Jetty used internally in a gradle installation. It would be useful if there was a way to access the internal Jetty configuration (similar to localGroovy()).

An alternative might be to allow the user to create a Jetty configuration in their build script and have gradle use that.

For reference, the current suggested workaround is as for GRADLE-1699.

The Jetty plugin has been deprecated and is scheduled to be removed with Gradle 4.0. We are not going to work on this issue anymore.
