ServletContext AttributeListener behaviour

when first request is made to the application the ServletContextListener invokes the
attributeAdded(ServletContextAttributeEvent sae) method with
sae.getName() returning org.apache.jasper.runtime.JspApplicationContextImpl
sae.getValue() = org.apache.jasper.runtime.JspApplicationContextImpl@5973ea

This happens before we programatically add any attribute in servlertContext.

i could not get what it is exactly. Please put focus onto it

Thanks in advance,

i am using tomcat
* so in stdout log file i can get the attribute name which i declare in contextlistener class and the attribute value is toString
* Before you write servletcontextattributelistener class make sure that you had servletcontextlistenerclass

The container is using the context to set its own attributes, that's why the listener is being notified before you even try to add attributes yourself.
