Hi, I don't understand the reason why we have to set the page directive isThreadSafe to false if we want the service method to be thread safe. I thought that we have to set it to true... Someone can explain it to me? Thanks. Eric

Hello Eric, The logic of using isThread safe is a bit tricky. What it means actually is, when I mark a jsp page with "isThread=true", I say to the container that, "I have developed my jsp in a thread safe manner, so you dont have to worry about it(by implementing the SingleThread interface)". However, if you say "isThread=false", the container steps in and implements the SingleThreadModel for your jsp and thus tries to make it thread safe. I hope this helps. Regards, Vijay
