I've seen the word 'threadsafe'  in various commands (I can't think of them
off-hand unfortunately) and was wondering whether the word referred to the
ability to maintain 'state' within a job.  I was also wondering if it had
any conoctation with the java concept? I can't seem to find any definition
for it in IBM Book Reader searches, other than the places it is being used.
I understand that each communication between a browser and the server is
considered a separate entity. The server is not necessarily aware of any
logical connection between successive user repsonses due to the ability of
the technology to allow the user to decide what the next screen is to be
rather than letting the application software decide. Is this correct?
If this is the case, then melding back-end application processing code with
a server and hence to a browser raises some interesting issues with state,
and logical transactions.

I hope I've made sense with the way I've presented this.
