A patch is now available for the development version of Jetty that introduces some of the proposed features for Servlet 3.0.  Key among these is a suspend/resume API on the request object that is a proposed standardization the Jetty Continuation mechanism for asynchronous servlets.

The patch is against the 6.2-SNAPSHOT version in svn head.  The following commands will checkout jetty, apply the patch and build the server:

svn co https://svn.codehaus.org/jetty/jetty/trunk jetty-6.2
cd jetty-6.2
patch -p0 < patches/servlet-3.0.patch
mvn clean install

The patch updates the cometd bayeux implementations to use the new API in the SuspendingCometdServlet class.   Jetty’s continuations have also been converted to a facade that calls the new ServletRequest.suspend() API.

Testing and feedback are most welcome!

Fantastic, downloading from svn right now. What is the ETA on 6.2?

6.2 (trunk) has been renamed to 7.0 and now has the servlet 3.0 patch applied.
