Subject Re: How does the server control the threads?

Thank you, Maciej.

Based on your answer, I guess that the servlet container will provide
an available thread for each incoming service request which initialize
the process instance, and then this thread will be active and take
care of the process instance through its lifetime. Is this correct?
