Hello Friends, Basically My servlet is not based on SingleThreadModel, but I want to synchronize only a particular portion of it [reading and writing data to a ServletContext Attribue]. Please post your suggestions.

Synchronization in servlets is the same as synchronization in any other Java environment. However, I don't think that simple adding or removing and object as a ServletContext attribute would require synchronization. Of course if multiple requests could modify the object, thats another story. Browsing around in the source for the Tomcat implementation of ServletContext, I found:
so it looks like the implementation is already taking care of synchronization. Bill
