Hello all,

I have a servlet (ServletA) invoking another servlet (ServletB) multiple times using RequestDispatcher.include(req,res) method. Actually the architecure is such like from ServletA's service method ServletB is invoked multiple times to achive a functionality. This is working as i am invoking ServletB sequentially one after the other. Now i want to multithread this.
Thus i have created a Thread class. But i have some doubts regarding this:
1. From my threaded class how do i invoke ServletB?
Will it work if i pass the RequestDispatcher from ServletA to the Threaded class. But in this case how do i send the Request & Response parameters to the include() method?

How do i go about this?

AFAIK, the servlet is multithreaded unless you implement a SingleThreadModel. So, it should remain the same.
