Hello,

I have a requirement. i have to post a request parallely on two servers. The first thing that came to my mind was multithreading. since it is a clustered environment, they say multithreading would create problems. I am not sure what exactly the problem. Is there any way that we can implement parallel processing with out using multithreading. Also not using any queues. if it is possible kindly share the same, if possible with some samples. I am using webspere 7. Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Aneesh

This isn't really a servlet question, since the "posting" part is on the client. There's no special code required for servlets to handle multiple concurrent requests because it's build into the architecture.

So it would have been better to ask in one of the more advanced General Java forums.

Off the top of my head, posting parallel is not a problem, but I'd have to RTFM to see how to keep from hanging once you were ready to receive the responses. In the normal course of events, responses would all come back to a single port and you could just listen for incoming response traffic on it, but HTTP assigns a different, randomly-selected reply port to each outgoing request.

What exactly is the client here? Unless the client is on one of the servers, I don't see how the server side environment makes any difference.

A separate Thread for each request is certainly the approach I would take.

Even then the only real difference it makes is that any threading would have to be done outside of a servlet/jsp process.

Me too, if it's just 2 servers being posted. If it's 200, I'd go for something non-threaded.

Hi all, I apologize for the delayed response. i was away and were not able to access net.

Thanks for all your responses.

The scenaria is as follows.

From the application i have to post request (in xml format) parallely to two different servers. Since we are going to implement this in a clustered environment, they were saying that multithreading would create some issue.(not sure exactly what the issue is). If that is the case how do we post the requests parallely to two different servers.

Unfortunately, without knowing what this "multithreading issue" is, it's hard to make suggestions.
