LocalHttpServletRequest This class (and LocalHttpServletResponse, and super classes) can be used to do requests on the current MMBase without having an actual client, which can be useful in cronjobs or so.

URLParamEscape Deprecated. use Encode
WrappedLocalizedString Extends and wraps LocalizedString.
WriterOutputStream Oddly enough, Java does not provide this itself.
