Just a thought....

Sometimes, I use the structure you suggest to make sure a Sting variable is
instantiated... Since a String variable can not (read: should not) be
changed, some folks will set the variable in the manner you've seen in the

Of course, the statements you've seen are not instantiating variables...
perhaps the developer was confused...

In terms of JSPs, shouldn't the security insure that someone can't drop a
JSP into the proper place?  First, don't they have to know where to put the
JSP, then have access to the directory to place it there?  On our AS/400,
some of our developers forget to change the security and it causes havoc
with maintenance... One of our developers left for an extended vacation to
Europe; I'm finding some of his JSPs that I don't have access to because he
forgot the grant QPGMR *RWX permissions.... very annoying...

I guess I shouldn't be using IBM's examples then.  I'm finding a lot of
programming flaws in them, like it was written for programmers who have only
done RPGII.
