Web application initialization...
1. First of all the web container reads the deployment descriptor file and then creates a name/value pair for each <context-param> tag.
2. After creating the name/value pair it creates a new instance of ServletContext.
3. It's the responsibility of the Container to give the reference of the ServletContext to the context init parameters.
4. The servlet and jsp which are part of the same web application can have the access of the ServletContext.
On that line, they have said, reference of the ServletContext to the context parameters? For a web application, there should be a ServletContext object in a JVM, then what is context object, to which they've said, passed the ServletContext object?
Thanks in Advanced!
Why not just read the Servlet Specification?
