Ok. To summarise when you include net.ims.jcms.* in your imports the
page compiles quickly but takes ages to respond to the first request.

I wonder if this is related to loading a specific class in your library.
Can you use a test JSP try and isolate which class(es) are causing the
slow down?

My thinking is if we can reduce the scope of the problem to importing a
single class, we can then separate out that class and reduce the code in
it bit by bit until we have the bare minimum that causes the problem.
Hopefully, there will be little enough code left that it will be obvious.
