1. iterate over ServletConfig.getInitParameterNames
2. foreach init param name check if there is a corresponding setter method (setter can only have one argument)
3. convert init param value to the data type that the setters argument has

Q: What exception should be thrown (ServletException?) if no matching method can be found in step 2) or data type conversion fails in step 3)?
A: A ServletException mapping the actual exception (for example
