Calling a method from the servlet.

I have a servlet in which I create a method 'A' which basically instantiates a class and than invokes method 'B' from this class. I invoke this method A from the init method
of the servlet. I have a print statement both in method A, and method B. When I run the servlet I am getting the print result from method A in the console, but I don't get
anything from method B, which I believe implies method B is not being reached. The code looks fine to me. How do I trouble shoot this? I am using Eclipse Indigo. Hope someone
can advise. Thank you.

Hello peter.

I think we will have a better understanding if you paste the code snippet here.

Unless you are trying this out of curiosity, it looks like a not so good design to me.
