Hello Ranchers,

I've developed a web site using Struts2 as a controller and integrated it with Spring and Hibernate to do the business logic and DB stuff. The website's URIs are http://my.domian.com/{URI}; which {URI} is dynamically generated thorough the admin cms. The mapping of each uri to the servlet are done with help of Apache mod_rewrite, as follow:


(Before any further information, is this a good and suitable approach?)

The struts configuration is just a typically-academic one as:


DynamicContentAction is extending ActionSupport and implementing ServletRequestAware, ServletContextAware. I'm checking a couple of things (such as a current visiting language which is identified as a subdomain), looking up in the database that the requested uri is valid or not, generating that uri's content and setting a couple of runtime global variables (such as current visiting page id, layout config due to current visiting language ...) and put it on a Request object in this servlet.

Everything looks good and even works perfectly ok, unless too many dynamic pages being requested by a single user concurrently. "Too Many" in my case is at least 9-10 pages. In this case it throws exceptions, different ones! Sometimes the HttpServletRequest request is null, sometimes ServletContext servletContext is null, some other times these are ok, but the runtime variables are null which is used in business logic or db querying.

I've googled about it and found out that this action is being instanciated "Per Request". Isn't this so? If there is an action per request, what's wrong with this conflict or "nullability thing". Should I do some thread-like thing in that action, beyond the threading of struts?

I'd be so appreciated if you could help me out or point me a direction.

Regards.
Khosrow
