This isn't so much a problem with your classes as it is with JServ. The
automatic restart code is basically broken and comments in their code say as

Ah, so you are the maintainer of GNUJSP? I would like to tell you about a 
little project that we have been working on. Its called "Webslinger" and it
is basically an implementation of JSP. However, we did not stop there. We
have also created a system for binding arbitrary tags to code generators.
This way, instead of:

Connection con = ... blah ...
Statement stmt = ...
ResultSet rs = ...
... code ... blah ... code ...

You can do:

<db con="con" stmt="myStmt" rs="myResults" query="select * from blah">

and a code generator expands that into the necessary code.

Its not necessarily clear. You need to look at the documentation you are
using very carefully in order to be clear about your rights. My rule of thumb
for the time being is "be paranoid and don't trust Sun".
