Hi

I am facing the same problem while creating threads in Tomcat.

I have a servlet in which i am calling a timer class which is continuosly running.I am planning to increase these times classes to fasten the process.

Can you please tell me wht overheads it takes if i do so and will it affect the performance of Tomcat.

When creating additional Threads in any servlet container you need to think carefully about the implications of servicing many requests. Creating a new Thread for every request is probably a very bad idea.

Back up a bit and define what timing functions you need to have, then maybe you can get suggestions as to how to implement the functions.
