Kathy and Bryan mention in their book HFS&J that the service() method in servlets is called by the container.How is it done?I believed that the container just created a thread and "started" it and then it was the run() method of the thread that had a call to service() which in turn would call doXXX().

Welcome to the JavaRanch! We like to keep a professional lookin' image around here, and don't really fancy it when people try to show up the one-eyed moose. So if you could change your display name (click here), that'd be just dandy. (If you'd like a more thorough reason as to why I'm asking you to change your name, check out the Naming Policy.)

Thanks! And again, Welcome to the JavaRanch!
I agree. Here's the link:
