Hi Mukesh, can you explain your question a bit clearly. There's a ServletContext class which represents the context in which a web application runs. What other contexts are you expecting??

The term context can be applied to many things.

There is only one context if you consider the word in a class name. There used to be a SessionContext which is now deprecated. So the simple answer to the question would be "there's one context, that's servlet context". To be frank the question doesn't make much sense to me. On first glance it looked to me about attribute scopes (which are context, session, request and page (only JSPs))...
