Hi all,

This post is (hopefully) mostly to confirm my thoughts. I've got a process that 
might take some time. I do not want the client to wait for the entire process 
however. If the client's input is valid, I just want to send the client a 200 
response and handle any subsequent errors internally.

My current solution for this is something like this: 

@Path ("test")
public class Test {

  // I'm not really instantiating it like this (but rather in a lazy method), 
  // but do want to check if I should be using newCachedThreadPool()
  // should I be getting some named or configured ThreadPool ????
  private static ExecutorService executorService = 
  public static String bla (@QueryParam ("me") String me) {
    if (me != null && me.trim().length() > 0) {
      // is this indeed the best way to go about this ????
      executorService.execute(new TestMe());
      return "Hallo " + me;
    return null;
  private static class TestMe implements Runnable {
    public void run() {
      try { Thread.sleep(20000); } catch (InterruptedException e) { 
e.printStackTrace(); }
      System.out.println("Done sleeping");

Which works, but I'm not sure if I'm handling the whole thread thing right (on 
JBoss 7AS)

Any thoughts?
