Basically a ServletContext is used to maintain a state for a web application (non-specific user). Much in the same way a Session object is used to maintain state of a client on a server.
I would recommend looking at a book called Professional Java Server Programming (ISBN 1-861002-77-7) for more information regarding where to specify, configure, initialize, access it, etc. It's an involved process but is very cool and worth while learning it if you're doing this type of programming.

Your statement about ServletContext
"it is not supported now .(sinnce javaweserver2.0 coz' its a dangerous (ref: jsdk docs) class)"
it totally off the wall.
The ServletContext is how your servlet finds out about various Application level parameters and is an integral part of the 2.2 Servlet spec.
In a JavaServer Page, the "application" object is a ServletContext.
You may have been thinking of HttpSessionContext which is now deprecated for security reasons.
