The Hightide distributions have been deprecated and are no longer available for Jetty 9.  For historical reasons we will continue to release hightide Hightide distributions on patch releases of Jetty 7 and Jetty 8 but the distribution will not be implemented for Jetty 9only. 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.
