Subject multiple servlets created with load-on-startup!=0 ?
Date Thu, 15 Jun 2000 13:21:23 GMT
Under Tomcat 3.1 as a standalone java servlet container, if I specify 

   <load-on-startup> some non-zero value </load-on-startup> 

for a servlet in my web.xml file, Tomcat is constructing and init()-ing
multiple copies of the servlet. The exact number varies between 3 and 5;
I can't detect a pattern. Leaving the tag out, or specifying 0 for the
content of the element yields exactly one servlet being constructed.  Is
this expected behavior? If so, why?
