You know, it's pretty much the same as for Windows versions, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and 
stuff.  The marketing guys keep pushing for some new bells and whistles, and the 
developers do their best to make it happen.  Otherwise customers get bored, and they may 
start looking at Jboss or so.
There is also these Java Servlet Specs guys who keep adding new things, so one's got to 
keep attention and change a few things left and right.
And then there are these hackers who got nothing better to do with their time than finding

overflowing buffers and such, so you need to keep that under control too.
It just never ends.
