well whats between 59 and 60? What is your app doing, which database etc. Could be a lot of things ;)
Which version of JBoss is this occuring in? And which servlet container are you using with it?

Well, that's just it; it doesn't matter, because the place where the slowdown occurrs is never the same twice. It may be 59->60, it may be 3->4, it may be 22->23, etc. Which is why I'm casting my eye towards my environment as the culprit. :)
Database shouldn't matter, either. The slowdown is definitely occurring while the JSP is processing, and the JSP does NOT hit the database directly. (The Action class populating the Form initiates the database hit(s), but that's running smoothly.)

I think Jetty, though I'm not 100% certain of that.
upgrade to 3.0.6, it has a significantly more recetn jetty version - perhaps this will help.
You could also try the 3.2 series, which uses Jasper2.
Finally you could try in the JBoss/Tomcat package, to see whether the problem is in your webapp or possibly Jetty,
I just switched from Jetty to Tomcat 4.1.12, and that did the trick. The app now runs like a scalded cat. now I can get back to just implementing the damn thing and not fretting over performance. :-)
Thanks for the tip.
