Hi EveryOne , In Sevlet life-cycle,the service() method calls the overriden doGet() or doPost() method which ever is applicable . After that the thread that is allocated for service() method will be destroyed by container.
After that i GUESS ,the overriden destroy() method will be called to kill the servlet object. But who does call this destroy() method??
If destroy() method is called every time then i think that for each request container has to load the servlet-class and then instantiate it.
Also what does it means by loading the class and instantiating it.

destroy() is a call back method. Which you wont have controll on it, it automatically called by container whenever needed. Example: it is called if you undeploying your application, or if you shutdown the server..etc..
