keeping track of client ids

suppose i decide to use object serialization instead of RMI
on the server, i spawn a thread for each connected client that services that client. the name of each thread is a positive integer, i.e. "1", "2", "3"...
now, when a client calls lock(int) or unlock(int), the methods check the name of the current thread executing them...that tells which client is locking or unlocking...
is this a decent idea, or am i thinking about it all wrong?
