Aruna,

I mean if there isn't no argument constructor?


All servlet containers require a default no-argument constructor to create a instance, otherwise your servlet would fail.

According to my understanding this no-argument constructor is provided by Compiler just like any other class. Even if you write a no-argument constructor, there should not be any problem.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

You are wrong.

When you provide your own non-nullary constructor, no default nullary constructor is provided. Therefore, the servlet will fail.

Constructors are not useful notions when it cones to servlets.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
