No. FaceContext is not a durable object. It is constructed by the FacesServlet and discarded once the FacesServlet is done processing. Since 2 servlets can't be running at the same time, you can't access FacesContext in any other servlet.

However, you don't necessarily need the FacesContext. A lot of people think that the FacesContext holds the backing beans. They're wrong. When a backing bean is in session scope, it's just like any other session-scope bean and the J2EE standard attribute access methods can be used to locate it. Likewise for request and application scopes.
