Jetty 6.x versus Tomcat 6.x

An AppFuse user asks:

Has anyone done any performance benchmarking between Jetty 6.x and Tomcat 6.x to see which one is better for production use in terms of scalability, performance and ease-of-use? I'm gearing towards Jetty 6.1 but want to hear other's opinions first.

I admit, I completely changed the wording in this quote to make it more readable.

Most of the companies I've worked with in recent years have been using Tomcat (very successfully) in production. However, I also know the Contegix and JavaLobby guys continue to swear by Resin for the most part. What's your opinion?

IMHO, I don't think it really matters - they're all good enough for production use.
