servlet context is a common object every application has and share among its components.
Hence it is loaded when the application is loaded in the container

Step:1 Container will load Servlet.class
Step:2 Container will invoke the default constructer(i.e instantiate to your Servlet.class)
Step:3 container invokes the init() method
but before invoking this init method it will create 2 ojects:
a. servletConfig
b. servletContext

If you have any init-param(for servlet config i.e specific to any servlet) in your web.xml then it will create an object holding the reference and wll pass the reference to the servletConfig object.

Similarly if you have some info that will be shared by whole applicatin(li database url,usrname,pwd) ,then a it will create an object and pass the reference to the servletContext.

Once these 2 object references are created then the init() is called.
