Is there only one ServletContext instance associated with all the servlets running in a 2.1 (or prior) compliant servlet engine?

Garth Somerville

Essentially the answer is yes, although even in the 2.1 specification it would have been permissible for a container to define multiple contexts either based on virtual hosts or based on part of the request URL, the same way it is done in 2.2. But I think the practical answer is yes, there is one context.
