Hi Brijesh,
Each incomming request to server in turn converted into separate executing thread for a respective single servlet instance.
What you want to do using multiple threading in servlet?

True .. As Ninad says , Container is responsible to create Threads and give each request to a new Thread. Or else pick from a pool of servlet instances and let it handle a request.

What did you want to do in a multi threaded environment ?
