Hi,

I understand that when a request is made to a web application's servlet, the request is delegated to the web container by the web server. The container then locates the relevant servlet class, creates the HttpServletRequest & HttpServletResponse objects and allocates a thread for the request.

What I wanted to know was ... does each web application run in a seperate instance of the web container or does a single web container manage all web applications?

Thanks!!

You can have more than one application per container. If you do tests using tomcat , tomcat is the container, and you can create as many apps as you desire.
