Why are the System.out.println()(SOPs) statements not printed on my console when they are included in the init and destroy methods.?
If i write SOPs in my doGet and doPost , they get printed.?
Also , i would like toknow whether a servlet and can have acinstructor written? what would be the impact of this contructor on the servlet life cycle?
Thanx in advance,

You can have a constructor for servlet.There wud be no impact.The constructor wud be called once just like init() when servlet is loaded

System.out.println should print from your init and destroy methods - if not you may have a serious problem. The first thing I would suspect is that the method signatures are not correct. You better double-check by looking at the javax.servlet.GenericServlet JavaDocs.

Silly question, but are they not being printed to your container log?
i.e. If using Tomcat then look in $TOMCAT_HOME/logs/catalina.out
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
