Can I use more than one <load-on-startup> tag in a web.xml?

Ofcourse for diff servelts mentioned in web.xml

Example:

<servlet>
<servlet-name>Log4JInit</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>com.me.pictures.logging.LogInitServlet</servlet-class>
<init-param>
<param-name>log4j-init-file</param-name>
<param-value>/WEB-INF/classes/resources/log4j.properties</param-alue>
</init-param>
<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
</servlet>
<servlet>
<servlet-name>debug</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>com.me.pictures.debug.DebugServlet</servlet-class>
<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
</servlet>

Yes, but you wouldn't want them both to be number 1.
That number determines the order in which the servlets load.

Although you can legally repeat the same number if the order of load doesn't matter. For example if A and B need to load before C, but the order of A and B is moot, both A and B can be 1, and C can be 2.
