When using a deployment descriptor (web.xml) with version 2.5, gradle jettyRun fails with the following exception:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.mortbay.jetty.annotations.AnnotationParser

This issue can be worked around by either copying jetty-annotations-6.1.14.jar from the Jetty distribution to $GRADLE_HOME/lib, or by declaring it as a providedCompile/providedRuntime dependency in build.gradle.

The jetty annotations are now in the classpath out-of-the-box. This should solve the issue.
