-------------------------------------------------------

I used it this way. But how about accessing a servlet which has
no init parameters BEFORE the servlet, which has one.
If you try this:
 String paramValue =
      getServletContext().getInitParameter("paramName");

paramValue will be null...

I think there is an easier way than defining all parameters
for each servlet in the web.xml ...

Thanks for answers.
