Hello Shapira,

I first tried with only the init-param (no context param) and it already
didn't work .
And I have the same problem with all my others servlets... :-(

I really don't understand why tomcat is enable to retrieve some information
but not all...
If there was a mistake in my web.xml file, I guess I'll receive an error on
loading the servlet?

Strange... Make sure the context-param and init-param names are
