The answer says that the method getContextPath is defined in HttpServletRequest and ServletContext but the method is defined only in HttpServletRequest

In ServletContext interface , public abstract String getContextPath() is defined.


Cleared SCJP 1.5 | Cleared SCWCD 5.0
SCDJWS 6 in progress.....

apache-tomcat-5.5.27\common\lib\servlet-api.jar
Look here: http://www.jdocs.com/servlet/2.4/api-index.html?render=classic
I can't find a method name like getContextPath in Servlet api 2.4

The method is present in Servlet API 2.5 but not in 2.4
http://www.jdocs.com/javaee/5.0.0/javax/servlet/ServletContext.html


And from the Faq answers:

What spec versions should I reference?
The SCWCD 5 actually still covers the J2EE 1.4 Platform, which includes Servlets 2.4 and JSP 2.0.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
