can you explain servlet life cycle
The life cycle of a servlet can be categorized into four parts:
1)Loading and Inatantiation: The servlet container loads the servlet during startup or when the first request is made.
2)Initialization: After creating the instances, the servlet container calls the init() method and passes the servlet initialization parameters to the init() method.
3)Servicing the Request: After successfully completing the initialization process, the servlet will be available for service. Servlet creates seperate threads for each request. The sevlet container calls the service() method for servicing any request.
4)Destroying the Servlet: If the servlet is no longer needed for servicing any request, the servlet container calls the destroy() method .
