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?
