Question ID :994874119438
Which of the following lines can be inserted at line //1 to retrieve an initialization parameter "dbname" from the init() method of a servlet?
public void init()
{
//1
}
1. getServletConfig().getParameter("dbname");
2. getServletCofig().getInitParameter("dbname");
3. getServletContext().getInitParameter("dbname");
4. getInitParameter("dbname");
5. getParameterValue("dbname");
I would say (2, 3, 4) are all correct.
But the answer is (2, 4)???

Thanks,

Well, I suppose the question intended servlet init parameters only.

Yes, it makes sense if it asks for the servlet init parameters, but not the context parameters.
