hi

Only one jvm will work for Web Container. Even though there are more than one application in a container, those will be executed with the help of one JVM.

It's worth noting that there will generally be a separate classloader for each web app. That way the applications can't access each others static data, and it makes it easier to use security managers to separate them further.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
