Subject RE: Getting multiple instances of my servlet, although it doesn't implement SingleThreadModel
Date Fri, 01 Mar 2002 13:31:50 GMT

	I guess what I said has led to some confusion.  I meant that each
<servlet> tag creates an instance.

	Here are the possible reasons for getting multiple instances:
	1.  Multiple <servlet> tags in web.xml
	2.  One or more <servet> tag(s) in web.xml and using /servlets/ to
access your servlet
	3.  Having the same context loaded multiple times.  This generally
happens because the AutoContextLoader (or whatever its called) is still
enabled and an explicit Context is also defined, making two contexts (and
two instances of the servlets).

	Randy
