ServletContext attributes and threading issues

Hi All,

I've got a question (possibly a lame one). Servlet context attributes in my app are set ONLY ONCE and that happens on the application startup. The question is if I can safely call ServletContext.getAttribute method without synchronizing it on the ServletContext object?? My guess is yes, but... it's just a guess

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
