Jetty was originally developed by Greg Wilkins of Mort Bay Consulting.
Mort Bay is at the heart of Balmain, Sydney NSW, Australia. A former working class suburb, now yuppieville in Sydney's close inner-west.
Greg was living by Mort Bay when the company was formed, hence the company name.
Jetty was originally called IssueTracker (its original application) and then MBServler (Mort Bay SERVLet servER). Neither of these were much liked, so Jetty was finally picked as:
- it starts with a J
- jetty:// looks a little like http://
- there is a jetty in the Mort Bay logo.
- there were no better suggestions.
