Hi...
Is it necessary to have threads in servlets, because as it is, the service method run on multiple threads to cater to multiple client requests.
If needed, how can we use threads in servlets?

Hi,
U need not worry abt managin threads. The Web container does the job for U.
The only thing that u need to know is that ur servlet is muti-threaded.
If u want to make it single threaded make it implement SingleThreadModel (Ensures that one request is processed at a time)

You should only use a Thread to carry out processes that are separate from the request - response cycle. For example, I have used Threads to manage a cache of data files, send email, and download XML formatted headlines. In every case these Threads are attached to separate utility objects, NOT servlet code.
