Tomcat isn't "crashing", it's doing what it is supposed to,
namely passing an exception on up the handler chain.
Other servlets and JSP continue to operate normally.
This is the opposite of "crashing." Scalability depends
on reliable exception handling.

The point of my post was to suggest Panagiotis try
debugging his base code before putting it into the servlet
runner, then blaiming tomcat/apache for "not reporting
the error" when his code fails. The servlet runner itself
is actually pretty stable, not to talk about apache, which
is rock solid.
