One Servlet Context object will be created by the container
for one webapplication. That means all servlets can have a
scope to acess that context object. for example, let us
assume there 5 servlets are there in u r web application,
if u want to share same data to all servlets then we can
share that data using servlet context, because every
servlet can have interaction with that application

1. ServletContext is a window by which a Servlet instance see its environment.
2. ServletContext defines some methods that a Servlet instance can use to communicate with Servlet Container. E.g. To dispatch request, Writing to a log file etc.
3. Servlet Container pass the ServletConfig object to the Servlet instance when calling init(ServletConfig config) method. ServletContext instance reference exist inside the ServletConfig object.
4. Each Web application has only one ServletContext instance. So its a singleton object. If an Servlet Container deploys multiple Apps, each App have its own ServletContext.
