I'm going to use SSL with my webapp. If I have nginx as proxy for Jetty, do I have to configure Jetty to use SSL or can I redirect SSL traffic from nginx to Jetty as HTTP traffic?

Yes you can redirect all the https traffic to jetty as http.

don't forget to forward the proto used to make jetty aware of it:

proxy_set_header HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO $scheme;
