After the container had found the servlet the client requested and it had created an HttpServletRequest and an HttpServletResponse object. Those objects will be passed as arguments in the service() method if the init method of the servlet is completed.

Are you asking about threads in server to server client request or java threads in general ?

Well in reality there is no way of telling. The Specification is empty on when the thread is created, and leaves this up to the people who are building the Servler containers. They may find optimized ways of do this to fit thier purpose.

In general, from the programming model, we should not need to know this, only use the functionality from our abstract layer http.servlet layers.

Now.. You may be able to ask your vendor this question or if it is an open source container, go look at the code yourself.

I am curious... what is the root of your problem, that you need to find out when the thread is created?
