Head First Servlet & JSP 2nd Edition book, Ch05, mock answer 14

In Head First Servlet & JSP 2nd Edition Chapter 5 - Attributes and listeners, check the mock answer 14 where it mentions that ServletContext has method getContextPath, but when I verified.... I did not find any such method.

when I tried the test I did not mark the getContextPath method for ServletContext interface.. later when I checked the answer,,, I thought I incorrectly answered the question... But when verified I realized I did it correctly.

Is it a printing mistake in the book?

Hi, Mukesh. getContextPath() is added to ServletContext in Servlet 2.5 specification. Please this url.

The exam is about Servlets 2.4, so it is still an incorrect answer

Thanks Christophe.... Yes I agree fully.

Thanks Chinmaya for locating the method and providing the API link but still as Christophe pointed out the exam is for Servlet 2.4,
So looks like printing mistake...., what you say?

Hi, Mukesh. I think the authors forgot to write a note saying, this method is added to Servlet 2.5 specification. The exam will not tested on this.
