Re: [servlet-dev] Spec section 4.2 - what does it mean?

I think it is trying to specify behaviour when you deploy servlets outside of the specification. Ie is kind of pointless.

Now there may indeed be a need for standards around deploying singleton servlets as in a web function kind of thing.... But this text is not it and does it belong in this spec IMO.

This spec is only about standard webapps and everything else is outside of the scope.

Hi all,

Section 4.2 has the following text:

Servlets in a container that were not deployed as part of a web
application are implicitly part of a “default” web application and have
a default `ServletContext`. In a distributed container, the default
`ServletContext` is non-distributable and must only exist in one JVM.

I can honestly say I have no idea what this is referring to. Is it a
full Jakarta EE server issue? It doesn't seem to make any sense for
'just' a Servlet container.

Can anyone shed any light?
