Hi,
I am trying to come up with a decent threading model for the developer assignment. I understand why RMI server needs to be multithreaded even though the architecture uses its own under the covers every time a remote method gets called. With the way the db file works for this assignment what exactly is the benefit of using thread extensively? If the assignment had some calculations that needed to be done it would've made more sense to distribute the work but when you are dealing with file I/O, how much does multi threading help? I know this is a philosophical question but I am taught to think hard before using threads.
Thanks much!

I forgot to add that I see some benefit of adding threads for searching but not for writing to the db file.
