hi, i m using Tomcat. Can any one tell me or sent me some url where i can get some information to configure Tomcat so that it will lode a specified servlet when it is started . Need help desperately.... With regards Arunabh
The Servlet API 2.3 introduced lifecycle events, which are a better solution to this (specifically, contextInitialized and contextDestroyed). Using a servlet purely for application initialization is kind of a hack.
