SingleThreadModel In Servlet
SingleThreadModel interface in Servlet - javatpoint
To handle the requests, the Servlet Developer must make adequate provisions for concurrent processing with multiple threads in the service method. Although it is not recommended, an alternative for the Developer is to implement the SingleThreadModel interface which requires the container to guarantee that there is only one request thread at a time in the service method. A servlet container may satisfy this requirement by serializing requests on a servlet, or by maintaining a pool of servlet instances. If the servlet is part of a Web application that has been marked as distributable, the container may maintain a pool of servlet instances in each JVM that the application is distributed across. For servlets not implementing the SingleThreadModel interface, if the service method or methods such as doGet or doPost which are dispatched to the service method of the HttpServlet abstract class has been defined with the synchronized keyword, the servlet container cannot use the instance pool approach, but must serialize requests through it.
A Fast Introduction to Basic Servlet Programming
Wednesday, 29 July Servlet Implementation. To implement the servlet in the program there are basically 4 ways means we can use any one from following four classes or interfaces to create a servlet program. It is having following methods which defines the life cycle of servlet. It is called by servlet container to initialize the servlet itself.
This interface has no methods. If a servlet implements this interface, you are guaranteed that no two threads will execute concurrently in the servlet's service method. The servlet container can make this guarantee by synchronizing access to a single instance of the servlet, or by maintaining a pool of servlet instances and dispatching each new request to a free servlet. Note that SingleThreadModel does not solve all thread safety issues. For example, session attributes and static variables can still be accessed by multiple requests on multiple threads at the same time, even when SingleThreadModel servlets are used.
