Hello all,

In SCWCD Exam Study Kit, it mentions that when we start up a servlet container, it will looks for web.xml and call Class.forName(className).newInstance() for each servlet. But when I do this, the servlet constructor does not be called.

Is the instantiation of servlet a part of lazy loading ?

Thanks in advance!
