ServletContextListener

Assuming I had a web application with a servlet that was declared to load automatically when the application is deployed -- will a declared ServletContextListener's contextIntialized(ServletContextEvent) method be called before the "pre-loading" of my servlet, or after?

Thanks for the reply, Bear! Is that coming from the servlet spec somewhere, or from your own experiences?

Nathaniel,

I got this idea when i was reading the chapter "Java Servlet" from J2EE 1.4 Tutorial. you can get it from suns site.

there is an example app in that we are making the db connections inside context listener, if im not forgetting.
