Actually, they seemed to mostly have rapid prototyping in mind with the 
JSTL SQL tags.  From the JSTL Specification, Chapter 10:

"Many web applications need to access relational databases as the source 
of dynamic data for their presentation layer. While it is generally 
preferred to have database operations handled within the business logic 
of a web application designed with an MVC architecture, there are 
situations where page authors require this capability within their JSP 
pages (e.g. prototyping/testing, small scale/simple applications,
lack of developer resources)."

But I would agree that the JSTL tags "should" be releasing DB 
connections properly--AFAICT the JSTL spec seems to indicate this is 
automatically done.
