We're pleased to have you here with us in the Servlets forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. 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.
You can, but you shouldn't. Firstly, if you use the wrong parameters it will never be used and will be useless, but more importantly, they don't fit with the design of servlets. If you want to initialise a servlet, place the code in the init method so it can be called by the container.
Ben's request that you change your display name to adhere to JavaRanch standards was not a suggestion. Valid display names are mandatory for participation on the Ranch. Please change your display name as instructed prior to your next post.
A valid last name must be used.
Be aware that accounts with invalid display names are disabled.
