Yes, as long as they have no arguments.
Good Luck,

In the earlier java specification, for the instances which were to be loaded by a class loader, the inclusion of a constructor with an arguement was not supported.And servlets were/are loaded by a class loader.
But IMO, this should hold true only in the case you have provided "only" an arguement constructor, what if you have provided a default no arguement constructor as well? as then class loader can load the instance easily.
