the server gets attached to bootclassloader. with a custom classloader class it can be found by other subprojects. but it is tricky - currently I start the server with all its servlets the first time I need it. . . .
I think before doing this we should look into how to get rid of jettty and access the "proxy" directly
@mkristian the reason that I asked btw, is that for an internal multiproject build, even when all the dependencies are up to date, we're still starting up three jetty servers to run an unrelated task :(
