Reference the javadoc APi for these classes. They are quite different and cannot be confused.

Also, please read this with regards to your choice of subject. This entire forum is dedicated to servlets so a title of "servlets" won't draw attention to your post.

Both are interfaces. The servlet engine implements the ServletConfig interface in order to pass configuration information to a servlet. The server passes an object that implements the ServletConfig interface to the servlet's init() method.
The ServletContext interface provides information to servlets regarding the environment in which they are running. It also provides standard way for servlets to write events to a log file.
