Is it possible to restrict the number of instances created of a Servlet that is using the SingleThreadModel?

Hi,
I would suspect that it would be a setting specific to an application server (and therefore non-portable). I don't know of a mechanism within the servlet specification to do this.
If you need to limit the access because your servlet is not threadsafe then you are limiting the scalability of your application and the servlet should be redesigned. I've never needed to implement the SingleThreadModel to get my work done.
I hope this helps.
Thanks,
Steve

hey paul,
i don't think you can do it. the question is why would you want to do it? may be there is some other solution for your problem?

Try not to use SingleThreadModel.
I wonder if anybody is using it.

SingleThreadModel doesn't gaurentee the single instance by definition itself. If you want to have only single instance don't use SingleThreadModel.
If you don't use Single Thread Model by default the server creates one single instance and makes all requests to that servlet as multiple threads.
If you want to use SingleThreadModel for synchronization purpose use synchronized code inside your servlet rather than using SinglThreadModel.
Hope this help you.
