  field private BBjspWebSession session!
  
  method public void service(BBjspServletContext context!)
       
    #request! = context!.getRequest()
    #response! = context!.getResponse()

    #response!.setHeader("MyHeader","Something")
    s!.write("<html><body><h1>Hello from BBJSP</h1>")
    s!.write("</body></html>")
