As the big book (Java Server Programming J2EE Edition) says - The servlet context defines a servlet's view of the web application. Each servlet context is rooted at a specific path in the web server. For example, the TechSupport application is associated with the context /techSupport. With the help of this notion, you can deploy multiple web applications under different context root names. All such applications can coexist as if they were deployed on different containers. Cheers, Dan
