Well, one option for a solution is set your servlet to load on startup
and have all your initialization done at startup so that these
elements are already initialized before the first request even comes.

I would just put in some logging code and find out where exactly
the time is being taken up in your servlet(if indeed this is where
it is actually munching clock cycles).
