Hello All,
I'm new to Struts development. I have a basic quest. Is there just one instance of the Struts ActionServlet that is shares across all requesting clients in ideal conditions?

I know one can have multiple controllers but that's nor recommended. SO in normal condition incase you are providing your own controller (by entending struts controller) how many instances are there in the JVM for that partucular controller servlet?

I think, one instance per JVM or one instance per application if it is deployed on single server...

I have not read about this anywhere so that I take it for granted!
But I think it all makes sense to have only a single instance of the controller component per web app.

Anybody pls. correct me if I'm wrong.
I agree. Here's the link:
