I tried using <load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup> but it did not work.
Thanks and regards,

Having a load-on-startup element inside of the servlet element should do the trick. Note that it will run the init method, not any of the other methods.
Using Tomcat 5.5 you should really use the contextInitialized method of a ServletContextListener, though. load-on-startup is a hack, and has been made obsolete by context listeners.
I agree. Here's the link:
