Re: Resource attributes in constructor

The class is instantiated by Jigsaw in a generic way, with
Class.newInstance().  This calls the default constructor for your class.
After the default constructor exits, Jigsaw calls your class'
initialize(Object[] values) method.  If you want something to be done as
soon as possible after the attributes are set, then you can put it in the
initialize(Object[] values) method, after calling super.initialize(values).

If I've made any errors here, I'm sure others will correct them, but I
believe this is the way it works.
