there is a abstract servlet in my project and made the database connection in init() method.
.in my subclass servlet extend the abstract servlet and overide th init() method.
and call super class init() method.
but if i remove calling super.init() it gives an ERROR.
what is the reason?
when extending my servlet to the super servlet it should call super init() method?
It is required if you want your init code to be run in Connector. If you override a method it replaces the method it overrides, if you still want to call the original method call super.themethodName() in the overridden method.
