How costly is it, to retrive a string data from ServletContext on every request?
I have a RequestListener which will retrive two string values from a ServletContext on every request and data in these strings will be same across all the requests, it doesn't change. What would you suggest? Write a raw code to fetch out the strings on every request or a wrapper data object which maintain the strings once its initialized?
