AFAICS (looking at the code) the 'java' Package object which you are 
implicitly using when you do the ${java.util.HashMap()} is only set up 
(and thus available to JXTemplate) if the FOM JavaScript interpreter is 
called first in the context of the request. Thus this facility is not 
set up generically for JXTemplates, only JXTemplates called from a flow.

This is why doing a 'null' flow which just calls your JX view works; the 
java package is set up by the flow; if the 'null' flow also contained 
other importPackage() function calls, you would also be able to use 
those packages in the JXTemplate.
