One of the specific questions is in this code:
    var userErrors = 0;
    this.formWidget_.validationErrorListener = function(widget, error) {
        if (error != null) {
    var finished = javaWidget.process(formContext);
    if (this.onValidate) {
    if (!finished || userErrors > 0) {
        cocoon.continuation = this.local_.webContinuation;
    return wk;

How does the call to "this.onValidate(this);" affect whether the form is
redisplayed to the user when it does not modify either of the variables
"finished" or "userErrors"?

Another question is what line triggers the return to the bookmarked
continuation?  My first guess would be the line "cocoon.continuation = ...",
but that would mean the next line would never get executed...any help
understanding this would be appreciated.
