Jetty is a web container - so my guess is that the answer to your question is "no". Jetty lacks the features to simply deploy a POJO because it has no "web service toolkit" functionality. If you were so inclined you could probably hand code a faux-implementation of a "web service" that exposes your POJO. Or you could deploy Axis2 as a web app to the Jetty component and then have Axis2 expose the POJO for you. But I don't think that either of those solutions is what you are looking for.
