different file from what?

sorry, but the NumberTool and ToolManager constructors do not catch
any exceptions.  heck, the NumberTool class has no explicit
constructor, just the default one.  and if they did catch exceptions,
the code would continue running rather than stop.  you're gonna have
to tell us about your environment, because you have something funky.
if i had to guess, i would bet that your setup is swallowing
ClassNotFoundExceptions.  this looks for all the world like
VelocityTools is not in the classpath at runtime and you are somehow
not seeing the CNFEs.
