As for the errors, you put them there yourself (by leaving NetBeans'
default method handler code in there). In other words, your code is
behaving as expected. For production, you'd put something in the
contextInitialized() and contextDestroyed() methods that actually does
something (write to a log file, configure log4j in the first place,

But you don't need the stuff in web.xml if you're using Java EE 6. Try
this annotation:

public class MyContextListener implements ServletContextListener {

Then you don't have to use the <listener> in web.xml at all.
