Subject Re: MessageContext and final static strings

the eclipse doc says that "Making an API field final breaks compatibility
with pre-existing binaries that attempt to assign new values to the field.".

assuming nobody tried to do this, I think making the fields final should be

on a related topic, any reason why these bunnies in JWSHandler are not

    public final String OPTION_JWS_FILE_EXTENSION = "extension";
    public final String DEFAULT_JWS_FILE_EXTENSION = ".jws";

We cannot change these; it apparently results in a link time error. Bugger.
I wanted to refer to it in the servlets where we check for whether a JWS
file exists.

I am about to add the JWS extension to the Constants class as a static, and
defining the JWSHandler version of it from the constants.
