I was going through link http://www.ervacon.com/products/swf/intro/index.html and have quite a few number of questions on the same. Below is the extract from that site

The ContextLoaderListener, which initializes the Spring Framework when our web application is loaded by the servlet engine (e.g. Tomcat). The root application context will be loaded from the services-config.xml classpath resource.
A Spring dispatcher servlet named phonebook, loading its configuration from two application context files: phonebook-servlet-config.xml and phonebook-webflow-config.xml. This servlet is also configured to handle all requests matching the URL pattern *.htm, e.g. all requests for the sample application.


I was not sure how the root application context file (services-config.xml) differs from application context files (phonebook-servlet-config.xml and phonebook-webflow-config.xml).
I want to understand how Spring uses theses files .Also, I am not able to get what init params we should give to DispatcherServlet .
