How about the THIRD answer?

Since:
- HttpServlet extends GenericServlet
- GenericServlet implements Servlet, ServletConfig, java.io.Serializable

So I could call:

Code: Select all

getServletContext().getInitParameter(java.lang.String name) 
So, are there 3 correct answers ? 2nd, 3rd and 4th?

You want to get the servlet initialization parameter, not the context initialization parameter.

Yeah, I understood that... But I am saying that there are 3(2nd, 3rd and 4th) answers correct, however the test considers correct only the following 2:

Code: Select all

getServletConfig().getInitParameter("dbname");

Code: Select all

getInitParameter("dbname");
But this one is CORRECT too.. the mock test marks it as wrong:

Code: Select all

getServletContext().getInitParameter("dbname");

Option 3 i.e. getServletContext().getInitParameter("dbname"); will give you the context initialization parameter, not the servlet initialization parameter, which is what the question requires you to retrieve. So why do you think this is correct?

Sorry, my mistake...

Despite the same signature, the methods:
- String getInitParameter(String) on ServletConfig
- String getInitParameter(String) on ServletContext -

They return different values.

Thanks Paul!
