Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: I-Jetty (webserver for the android mobile platform)
I-Jetty is an open source Android project which is a port of the popular Jetty open-source web container to run on the Android mobile device platform. Having a “personal” webserver on your phone opens up a world of possibilities, letting you run your favourite existing webapps in your mobile environment.
Moreover, as webapps developed for i-jetty have access to the Android API, this means that you can bring the contents of your mobile phone to your normal desktop browser.
To demonstrate the possibilities, we’ve included a “console” webapp, which interfaces to the data on your mobile device. You don’t need any special software to synchronize the mobile data to your desktop computer – the i-jetty console makes your on-phone info like contacts lists, call logs and media instantly available and manageable via your browser.
The i-jetty project consists of the i-jetty application, and 3 example webapps that can be deployed onto the phone:
1. console: which allows you to access the on-phone data from anywhere
2. hello: an example webapp containing a HelloWorld servlet
3. chat: a chatroom using jetty’s implementation of the cometd Bayeux protocol

Jetty provides an HTTP server, HTTP client, and javax.servlet container. These components are open source and available for commercial use and distribution.
Jetty is used in a wide variety of projects and products. Jetty can be embedded in devices, tools, frameworks, application servers, and clusters. See the Jetty Powered page for more uses of Jetty.
The core Jetty project is hosted by the Eclipse Foundation. The codehaus provides Jetty accessories , integrations, and extensions, as well as hosting older versions of Jetty.
