Hi I know that when a servlet config is created it is passed onto the init method.. However i am a bit confused about servlet context. When a servletcontext is created where is that passed i dont think its the init method as the init accepts only a servlet config object.?? and what happens when both a servlet config and aservlet context are to be passed to a servlet ?? wasnt it suppose to have a method like init(Servletconfig,servletcontext) or something like that ?? I hope someone could help me out clarify this concept... Thanks..

Adam,

You dont have to do that. you can get the ServletContext from servletconfig.getServletContext() method. Please refer to the java docs.
