Hi Catrine,
I think your post will generate more questions than answers. Can you advise on why you need 3 threads to run on 3 different servers, are the 3 threads doing different jobs whats the problem with them running on one server.

Also some other things you should be aware of. If you are creating threads like

this is not recommended. In ejb specs its not allowed and while not explicit in the servlet spec I don't think its advised. In websphere unmanaged threads don't have access to context info so jndi looks using an InitialContext may give you null pointers. For scheduling take a look at the scheduling section in this article

I think post some more details on what type of work you need to do with these 3 threads and why they need to execute on different servers and we'll see if there are alternative ways to doing what you want.

I agree. Here's the link:
