For <context-params>,
I know it's using context.getInitParameter()
But for <servlet><init-param>
Is it using request.getParameter?
Thanks in advance!!

Hello Hue Cheng,
it's getInitParameter() on the ServletConfig object (retrievable via getServletConfig()).
Hope it helps

so are you meanig that both <init-param> and <context-params> are retrivable via request.getInitParameter?
Thank you very much.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
