load-on-startup doubt ...

When i use the <load-on-startup> tag in the DD, the Servlet is loaded at deploy time, this is ok with me. But, does the <load-on-startup> call the init method on that Servlet ?

Please clear my doubts ...

Thanks in advance ...

You might like to try something like a servlet with code such as

public void init(){
ServletContext ctx = getServletContext();

Then restart your container without requesting the servlet and see what is in the the log.

Loading also initializes. It will take you to the point where in when your first request comes in, it starts with the service method.
