Servlet related doubt
Posted on 2010-11-17
I was reading about Initializing a Servlet
The container calls the init method of the Servlet once to initialize it. A ServletException is thrown if initialization fails. But we no longer have to implement this method since the GenericServlet class already has one. If need customization, GenericServlet also has an overloaded init method to further simplify the process – no need to call super.init(ServletConfig config).
I have not understood

>>>no need to call super.init(ServletConfig config).
Can you please advise. Any ideas, links, resources, sample code highly appreciated. Thansk in advance
