Hi, I have a question. I have a servlet.I want to load country from database and put in application context. My question is "Does the method called from init() to perform the above has to synchronized " to be thread safe?
Thanks in advance,

Hi init() is called once and only once when the servlet is loaded[ During start up or when it handles the first request - as configured]. Any method called from the init() method will be called only once. So you don't have to worry about the thread safety and sync.
