Why Servlet has excluded setAttribute for ServletConfig where i can get config object through getServletConfig() and later i can set the attribute for particular servlet at different point of time .

Thank You

The ServletConfig represent the configuration of the servlet from the deployment descriptor. It makes no sense at all for any type of set operation, so there aren't any. If you want to set run-time values, that's something you'd do with the ServletContext.
