Server thread question

Hai, when a servlet gets loaded into the server, the server creates an instance of the servlet.
My Question is,
Will the server provide one thread for each client or it initiates a thread for each client's single request?

A server uses one thread for each request, regardless of which client it comes from or which servlet or JSP it goes to.

What the container does internally differs from one vendor's implementation to other , be it servlet, jsps or EJB's. For eg. in EJB's the container may or may not create instance pools for say entity beans(though most of them do). Ultimately all is transparent to the user.
I agree. Here's the link:
