Why would you recycle if you aren't pooling?  You can't (or at least shouldn't)
rely on recycle() being called--even in a pooled environment.

The whole purpose of the recycle() method is to return the component to an
initial state *if* it is pooled and reused.  If the component is created and
destroyed (SIngleThreaded in old ECM parlance, or when the pool is overloaded),
then the recycle() method is never called once.  And that is with current ECM

Do not rely on recycle() for any transactional boundary or you *will* find your
application malfunctioning under load.
