I am populating data from database in an object inside the init method os the
then I am configuring this servelet in web.xml to load on start up using<load-on-startup>
public class TestServlet extends
public void init() throws
tm= call to database(not posting actual code in this line)
I am not much familiar with
,my question is how do I access this object- tm in other classes.
Thanks in advance.

Maybe you can assign it to a singleton variable or store as servlet context attribute.

A servlet is a poor choice for this.
If you need to do something at startup that is not specific to a particular servlet, use a context listener instead. And then, as D pointed out, store the object in application scope (servlet context) for later retrieval by other components.
