1)What's a better approach for enabling thread-safe servlets and JSPs? SingleThreadModel Interface or Synchronization? Should I use the SingleThreadModel interface or provide explicit synchronization to make my JSP pages and servlets thread safe?

2) Is there a way I can set my servlets to do thread pooling? Can I spawn a background thread from my servlet?
3) When building web applications, what are some areas where synchronization problems arrise?

1) Synchronisation is better as implementing SingleThreadModel is not fully thread safe.(Multiple threads can still access static variables)
SingleThreadModel is deprecated in Servlet2.4 spec and you are suggested to stop using this interface.
