Servlet Single ThreadModel Interface

Servlet Single ThreadModel Interface

shape Description

With various requests for the same servlet, in the container different strings are dynamic inside the procedure. On the off chance that the Programmer might want to have one and only string dynamic at once (different strings, if exist, must be passivated or made dormant) then user actualizes the SingleThreadModel interface and it being marker interface no techniques should be abrogated.

Servlet Single ThreadModel Interface, The Thread can be defined as task or program and every program will have thread, Servlet SingleThreadModel is an interface which will not have any methods and developer has to use this implement to confirm that servlet only can handle single request at a time. The main drawback back of this interface is that does not resolve all the issue such as thread safety issues, even though implemented this developer has to use others to solve thread safety problems. All the thread will be controlled by java.lang.Thread class.

The concepts of threads and multi threadig have already covered in core Java.

shape Example

Servlet Single ThreadModel Interface – Following are the required files to this example.

Following is the code structure of life cycle methods.



package servletsinglethread;

import javax.servlet.ServletException;  
import javax.servlet.SingleThreadModel;  
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet;  
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;  
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;  
public class MyServlet extends HttpServlet implements SingleThreadModel{  
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)  
    throws ServletException, IOException {  
    PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();  
    out.print("Dear users");  
    catch(Exception e)
    out.print(" welcome to splesson");  

In doGet(), the parameters are appended to the URL and sent along with the header information. Sets the content type of the response being sent to the client, if the response has not been committed yet. The given content type may include a character encoding specification. The java.lang.Thread.sleep(long millis) strategy causes the presently executing string to rest for the predefined number of milliseconds, subject to the exactness and precision of framework clocks and schedulers.
The java.lang.Throwable.printStackTrace() strategy prints this throwable and its backtrace to the standard mistake stream. It prints a stack follow for this Throwable article on the blunder yield stream that is the estimation of the field System.err.

Catch block is meant to give a message to the user when an exception occurs during the execution of a program. There are different styles used by the programmer where each style gives different messages. Programmer can choose one on his needs. Few. styles are using getMessage(), printStackTrace()

When clicked on the link following message will be displayed.


shape Key Points

  • Servlet Single ThreadModel Interface will not have any methods.
  • Servlet Single ThreadModel Interface can not resolve all thread safety mechanisms.
  • All the thread will be controlled by java.lang.Thread class.
