In the web.xml, under the servlet definition, you can define init parameters something like this: (I do not remember exactly, check first)

Or something like that.
Now, in your servlet's init method, you can use

to get "some value".

yes, inti-param can be defined in web.xml which can be accessed by servletConfig object. but what i am not getting here is how the servletConfig can be able to carry these information?
thanks.

Oh, you want the data to persist in the servlet itself?
Simple, just define some instance variables in the servlet, then set them in the init method.
