Hi Guys !!!
How is Servlet Requests by multiple users actually handled ?
I've heard of multi-threading taking place. Does this happen on the part of the web server or does the Servlet Container create a separate thread for each request where the run()contains a call to that servlets service(). How does it actually happen ???
Thanks Guys !!!

You need to get hold of a basic book or tutorial on servlets. Working in the servlet environment is quite different from a single user application.
It is the responsibility of the servlet container to create / assign a Thread to each request. Usually the servlet container keeps a pool of Threads to avoid the extra computation of creating a new one. All of the context for a particular request and response is handled by that Thread.
In addition, a servlet container will have a number of other Threads minding various chores such a keeping track of sessions.
