[concurrency-interest] Default values for maximum thread count in JVM web servers

Hi,

I was always curious to know about how the default max thread count in Java
web servers are decided. For almost all servers (Tomcat, Weblogic etc..)
the default value is always between 150 to 200.
Is there any specific reason for this number.?

Recently I read a blog explaining why the default max thread count was
changed from 25 to 250 in .NET
http://www.bluebytesoftware.com/blog/PermaLink,guid,ca22a5a8-a3c9-4ee8-9b41-667dbd7d2108.aspx


Is there any similar reason for default count of 150 to 200 in Java web
servers?

Thanks,
Unmesh
