If i start a new thread in
doget() method to do some task asynchronously, will that return the current httprequest processing thread into the server's pool or will it depend on the child thread ?

If you start a new Thread it will exist independently of the container Thread pool unless you deliberately program otherwise.
There is no such relationship as a "child" Thread - see the

Even a new thread is spawned from doGet(),
Request Processing Thread and newly spawned thread will run in "parallel"...
If task in servlet method is done, Request Processing Thread will be returned to the pool, while spawned thread would be executing.
It all depends upon how the thread is managed...
If you use join() method in doGet(), makes Request processing thread to wait until newly spawned thread completes its execution...
