Dear Friends,
I am learning spring.I would like to know when and why we use the ContextLoaderListener.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app version="2.4">

<listener>
<listener-class>
org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener
</listener-class>
</listener>

<context-param>
<param-name>contextConfigLocation</param-name>
<param-value>/WEB-INF/contacts.xml, /WEB-INF/resources.xml</param-value>
</context-param>

</web-app>
