Well , I suppose that diferents AJAX calls go throught the same TCP
connection, but I'm not sure.

OK. So, ALL requests over the same TCP connection are stacked up into
a buffer and proccess one-by-one, arent' they ?
Please , confirm this fact if it's right

Umm, I thought that persistent connections were the default behaviour.
I don't know if AJAX calls use persistent connection or open a new
connection for each request

All my doubts are about the relationship between   threads -
connection - requests

one thread by connection and that thread process all requests on-by-one ?
one thread by connection and others threads are created to process
each request ?
