Is a servlet config object initialized by the container automatically for a web application when it starts.

The ServletConfig object is initialized for each instance of the servlet defined in the web deployment descriptor whenver the servlet container initialized a servlet. And when does this happen? it's depends on the servlet container strategy. Some of them load all servlets at once when the container started.

You can control when the servlet is initialized using the <load-on-startup> element in the deployment descriptor.
