I have a servlet that's executed currently by calling the request dispatcher and then calling "include()". What I want to do is execute that servlet in a different thread (so my JSP can return), while providing it with the request and response objects.
1. How do I do this?
2. Are there any deployment/init/config things I need to do to enable my servlet for this?
thanks!

I am not sure what the requirements are, but whenever i need to do asynch. processing I just create a class and have it execute in its own thread.
You could pass the request object to it or retrieve the data from the request and pass it in its own class. I am not sure if the response will be of any use since you probably wont be able to write to it.
Hope this helped.
