I assume you want to test the server at 1,000 users since the browser only supports 1. The server can't tell an AJAX call from any other; as Billy Joel says, It's all HTTP to me. Can't you simulate the AJAX calls with any HTTP load tool?
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

I should specify that I am using DWR reverse ajax., different from the servlet.

Ah, that I don't know about. I did have a design with a server calling Applets but that was all sockets which probably doesn't apply atoll.
How does DWR do that ... send an XHR request that doesn't get answered until the server has a message to send?
