Here I want to get the Initialized parameters from 'Server.xml' file in Tomcat Configuration Dir.
I am having problem of how to update the config/server.xml or web-inf/web.xml file on server & by which code. Can any body tell me about this?
Thanking You

1. Put the init-param into the web.xml:
2. Somewhere in your servlet ask for the param-value i.e.:
public void init() throws...
String myParamValue =
// do something with myParamValue...

Make sure you give your servlet a registered name. Initialization parameters are not available in servlets that are accessed by their default URL.
