The FormsContext class is not part of servlets. It is either a class defined by your project, or by some 3rd part library that your project is using.

Without any context I can only guess that it's some weird way to obtain a reference to an instance of the request in order to obtain a parameter value.

getParameter("some string value") method is used to get some string value from a text box, label option button etc...

Only indirectly. The methods fetched request parameters which are sometimes the result of form submissions, but need not be.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
