My Web App consists of JSP and Servlets. With in the servlet I set session attributes to certain values. If I have say three different people start using the app do each of them have a separate session in which the values they set to the session attributes are exclusive? I want to make sure that one user making a request does not affect what another user is doing.

Assuming that the three people are not sitting on each other's lap using the same computer, they will each have separate sessions.

That's the whole point of sessions.

While they each have separate session, it is possible to put the same global object into all of the sessions (in which case multi-threading becomes a problem). Is that the case here? Or are all objects you put into the sessions guaranteed to exist in just a single session?
