Having struggled with the new Servlet 3 stuff allowing pure Java
configuration and having Tomcat scan the whole classpath at startup to
find the information, I can get your point as it adds between 10 and
20 seconds at each startup.

That said, I'm still not a big fan on maintaining at hand @Indexed
annotations on a branch with a lot of subclasses :).

Fair enough. I'll give it a try in the next few days.

Thanks for the pointer.
