Subject RE: How to run a thread on app startup
Date Mon, 03 Apr 2006 19:43:13 GMT
I figured out that the best way to do that is with a variable of type
InheritableThreadLocal that keeps a copy per thread.

We have 4 webapps over the same framework and all works in the same way.
The servlet creates a new instance of MyApplication and sets this
"singleton by thread" in the MyApplication class
After that, all threads created based in the servlet thread will have
the same copy of your App.
