A new version of Jetty has been released which may be of interest to  
you. See 

A simpler approach is to create the ServerSocket with a very large  
backlog value (I don't know what the maximum backlog size would be on  
your system - it may well be configurable).

If you want a single process to be able to have 7,000 TCP/IP  
connections open at once then you may well need to change to OS  

If you give us a little more information we may be able ot offer some  
more suggestions.
