Hightide is

The Hightide distributions have been deprecated and are no longer available for Jetty 9.  For historical reasons we will continue to release Hightide distributions on patch releases of Jetty 7 and Jetty 8 only. You can achieve all of the functionality of the Hightide release by enabling JNDI and Annotations with Jetty 9 (although you will need to provide your own JTA impl).

Hightide is an optimized, versioned distribution of the Jetty open source web container. It comes pre-integrated with a number of services usually only found in J2EE application servers, or which you would otherwise have to craft together yourself: JNDI, an XA transaction service, a JMS message fabric, and a JDBC accessible database. Thanks to Jetty's light weight, pluggable architecture, Hightide allows you to easily choose which of these services you want to use, or even replace them with others.
