Hi all -

In the Section 3 quiz of Marcus' study guide. Question 5 is as follows:

Which of the following statements are true?
a. Every (non distributed) web application has only one instance of ServletContext
b. Every instance of HttpServlet has only one instance of ServletContext
c. The ServletContext object is retrieved via the getServletContext method of ServletConfig
d. The ServletConfig object is retrieved via the getServletConfig method of ServletContext

A and C are listed as the correct answers.

My question is that shouldn't B also be correct. Isn't the ServletContext available to the servlet via the getServletContext() method?

Thanks
Mark

Maybe the author intended to ask if every servlets has access to only one common context, which would be wrong in a distributed environment.
Maybe a subtle difference between "each instance of" and "every instance of"...
