What are the various ways to unload a servlet?
more simply, when a servlet is called, it is loaded by the web server, the required method is called and after that the servlet is unloaded.
So again, what are the various ways to unload a servlet??

I don't know of a way to do this from the servlet. This is
usually a function of the web server - most servers will
cache sevlets for a period of time ~20 seconds or so, but
it can be changed by the web server.
Some web servers allow for servlets to attach to the web
server API and allow for the servlet to control when it is
to be unloaded.
I agree. Here's the link:
