"fried Water",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

The short answer is yes.

"application context" is the name used in JSP
"servlet context" is the name used in the servlet API

But they refer to the same thing, and can be used interchangeably.
