Hi,

I got this question from jdiscuss.com. I thought that

Problem

Assuming that the Servlet Container has just called the destroy() method of a servlet instance, which of the following statements are correct?


Options

Select 2 correct options.

1.Any resources that this servlet might hold have been released.

2.The servlet container time out has exceeded for this servlet instance.

3.The init() method has been called on this instance.

4.None of the requests can EVER be serviced by this instance.

6.All threads created by this servlet are done.

I selected 1 and 4 but the answers given are 3 and 4.
I understand 3 is logically correct but I did not understand why 1 is wrong.

Can anybody please explain ?

Thanks ,
Swathi

No. You have to release them yourself. If you don't, then they will not be released.
