Hi Ivan,

scdjws-5 study note, In page number 130,

The following points are given

Servlet Endpoints

Does not manage multi-threading issues.


Servlet end point does not manage Multi-threading?, still servlet container will take care of multithread right? please correct me if i am wrong?

Hi!
The container does not limit the number of threads that are allowed to execute concurrently in a servlet endpoint, like a servlet.
The EJB container, on the other hand, limit the number of threads that can execute in an EJB (with container managed concurrency) to one.
Thus you, as a developer, must take the above into consideration when developing the different kinds of endpoints. Or rather: You do not have to think about it when developing an EJB endpoint, but you must be careful with servlet endpoints.
Best wishes!
