Yes. It is like any other method. So, you can call it from the service method.

Nothing special. The statements in the destroy method gets executed, as it would happen in any other method.

The only thing special with the destroy method is that, this method is called by the Servlet Container when the servlet is unloaded.

Further, there is no reason to ever call the destroy method yourself.
