Database servlet

Hi all,

I'm trying to understand the DatabaseServlet from the MailReader example, but couldn't figure out exactly at what time has the hashtable been populated:



I don't know the Digester API, but it seems that all it does is to populate the User and Subscription DTO's. Next, in the init() method (where load() was called) it assumes already that the hashtable is populated:

try {
load();
getServletContext().setAttribute(Constants.DATABASE_KEY,
database);
}

Thanks,


Kaiser
