Yes. By default the maximum thread pool size equals Integer.MAX_VALUE. 
It can be changed but this has changed bewteen MINA 0.8 and 0.9.

In 0.8, when using SimpleServiceRegistry, you can configure the maximum 
pool size like this:

IoThreadPoolFilter f = (IoThreadPoolFilter)

In 0.9 its not that easy since the ThreadPoolFilter used by 
SimpleServiceRegistry isn't accessible until a session has been created. 
You could try to extend SimpleServiceRegistry and configure the 
protected threadPoolFilter yourself:

public class MyServiceRegistry extends SimpleServiceRegistry {
     public MyServiceRegistry() {

And then instead of using SimpleServiceRegistry you use MyServiceRegistry.

Both of these approaches will use a thread pool of at most 10 threads.
