Jigsaw's autoindexing and reloading of servlets is only suitable for
simple servlets with a single class. A more robust solution is to base the system
on jar packages instead.

java -jar ajarfile.jar
will execute a jar file starting from the class specified in the manifest file under the header "Main-Class"

I suggest jigsaw could create a similar standard perhaps using a manifest header of "Servlet-Class" to specify
the servlet class.

My particular servlets are in-memory databases and have long initialisation times
so other enhancements  might be:-
1) Do *not* auto-load the servlet when using jigadmin.
2) Do auto-load some servlets at jigsaw startup time.
