In order to start static HTML pages you don't need jetty or any java - just install apache web server

Thanks for the answer, but i should be able to setup the webserver dynamically and start serving html files on a target machine...

You can start the web server from java program, if that what you meant by setup webserver dynamically

You also can set up toncat and use tomcat to serve static pages, although apache is more effective when serving static pages.

dynamically for me is, install and start. The reason why i am thinking to embed a web server in my code is that my automation will be able to install and start webserver on any target platform without having to worry if it has a webserver installed or not

You can certainly create and run any java application with maven, of course also the one
which will start jetty or any other web server which you can use or implement yourself

This is the huge list of pure Java webservers

http://java-source.net/open-source/web-servers

though some of them mentioned there (like Tomcat) in fact rely on some pieces in native code, so
Tomcat of course would not serve your purpose
