This is true for all Java code.

I think you are confusing code execution with browser output.

Think of writing browser output like writing to a file. You can run code that writes to a file, but just because the file is finished doesn't mean your code is finished.

Just because you get a response in the browser doesn't mean that all code on the server has stopped executing. The code still has to follow normal Java flow.
