threadsafety in JSP

I am using a class which returns an Arraylist in a jsp.
I was wondering if it will be threadsafe or not - since I was not very sure if the particular arraylist shows up as an instance variable or a method variable in the jsp instance..
code in the jsp:
dataCommand = new GetIdeasByOfferNamesValueOfferName );

Although your question and code example are not very detailed, you will not have threading issues in a JSP as every variable (declared in scriplet) is method local.
Also, if you are saying "new", every thread will be creating a new instance, and is inherently thread-safe.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
