A servlet config object is used by a servlet container, to pass information to a servlet during initialization.
The webserver uses separate module to load and run the servlets called servlet container.

A servlet container takes the information specified about the servlet in the deployment descriptor and wraps it into servletconfig object. This information can be retrieved by the servlet during initialization.
