Answer / ashwin kumar j

Yes you can call a destroy() method in init() method, but

Answer / suraj kumar

This action does not disturb the normal life cycle flow of the servlet. The servlet will work normal. You may test the below code.

/**
* @author Suraj
*
*/
public class TestServlet extends HttpServlet {


public void init(ServletConfig config)throws ServletException{
super.init(config);
destroy();
}

protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse resp)
throws ServletException, IOException {

System.out.println("I am test servlet.");
}

}

Can we call destroy() method inside the init() method? What happens when we do so?..

Answer / amitasite

One can call destroy method from init method. One scenario
in which you would like to call is some resource is looked
up once in init() method and cleaned in destroy() method. If
exception is thrown before it finishes as servlet is not
brought in service, container won't call destroy method. so
to keep resource clean you can call destroy() method from init()
