I have asked some people and they said that JVM can only process one thread at a time, if the servlet needs to handle multiple requests simultanously or several servlet run simultanously,Thread.currentThread().yield() should be used. As I read several books, they never mention to use Thread.currentThread.yield() to handle multiple requests. On the contrast, they teach how to use synchronized word to make sure thread-safe. Then, is it greatly dependent on the servlet engine spawn threads for you?
if not, Thread.currentThread.yield() should be used in this case?
Also, JDK1.3's JVM still can only have one thread at a time?

JVM can process more than one thread at a time.
Now Comming to Servlets; here if the data is sharable/ common to all or if that change or that process is going to reflect all the clients then other clients must wait for the current thread to complete. In such case servlet will use Synchronized keyword else it will go for multi threading.
>>Thread.currentThread.yield()
This causes the currently executing thread object to temporarily pause and allow other threads to execute.
>>Then, is it greatly dependent on the servlet engine spawn threads for >>you?
yes. it depends on servlet to spawn threads.

I hope ur doubt is cleared.

oh! how come!? I have deleted the question. Don't know why it still exists.
Actually, my question is wrong. If only one thread could run in JVM at a time, I think Java had no multi-threading concept. So the sentences I got is totally wrong. That why I deleted the question.

What I want to ask is a process. As I know, netscape VM and Microsoft VM only allows one process at a time
Java VM can run multiple processes at a time, right?
