/**
 * An object that you can make available in a template

 * Beware of this class's security implications. It allows
 * the instantiation of arbitrary objects and invoking 
 * methods on them. Usage is something like:
 * <br>
 * <br>myDataModel.put("objectConstructor", new ObjectConstructor());
 * <br>
 * <br>And then from your FTL code:
 * <br>
 * <br>&lt;#assign aList = objectConstructor("java.util.ArrayList", 100)&gt;
