Yes. There is a common Cargo API that is container agnostic.

The API itself isn't at the moment (I don't think).

The API goes something like:

  //Set up the webapp you want to be deployed
  Deployable servletExamples = new WAR("src/test/resources/servlets-examples.war");

  //Set up the canned configuration for the container (eg jetty6)
  LocalConfiguration config = (LocalConfiguration)factory.createConfiguration("jetty6xEmbedded",
              ConfigurationType.STANDALONE, tmpdir);
  //Associate webapp

  //Create the container of your choice (eg jetty6)
  Jetty6xEmbeddedLocalContainer container = 
       new Jetty6xEmbeddedLocalContainer(config);
  //Start the container and statically deploy any associated webapps

  //Create a different webapp
  Deployable jspExamples = new WAR("src/test/resources/jsp-examples.war");

  //Create a hot deployer for the container
  Jetty6xEmbeddedDeployer deployer = new Jetty6xEmbeddedDeployer(

  //Hot deploy the webapp

  //Hot undeploy the webapp

  //Stop the container

There is a Maven2 plugin equivalent for all of that API as well, so you
can set it all up in your pom.xml instead of writing code.

No, I haven't seen what Bill has done for Tomcat etc with Cargo, but whatever
he has done for the others is now do-able also for Jetty.

Note tho' that if you go to using the Cargo plugin to kick off the Jetty
webcontainer instead of the Jetty6 plugin you won't have the automatic
redeploy of a webapp if a class changes.

I believe Cargo supports Tomcat and JBoss and somebody is looking into
supporting Geronimo - it's either just newly done or being done.
