Hmmm, best practices for web development are to use struts, spring, or JSF. :-)

My suggestion (if you are not wanting to use Spring) is to create a
class that has a static reference to a sql map in it that contains the
code above. Not sexy, but it works.

I do not understand the question. Can you clarify it please?

No, no, no, please: no. 

I have seen that done with hibernate, and IMO, it is one of the worst
patterns of anything data-related I can imagine. As un-sexy as the
static idea above was, this is worse. Using your web layer to
initialize your data layer is just a really, really bad idea. Nancy
Reagan was right: "Just say 'no'."
