Comment: Re:Can't spawn threads or make network connections (Score 1) 168

Servlets don't restrict network connections, and people do it all the time to talk to their database. I know you're not supposed to spawn threads with EJB (because transaction information is kept in thread local storage), but I don't recall anything about not spawning threads being in the servlet spec. I know of a lot of code that does it in various containers without problems.
