Velocity ServletContext


How I can access attributes from Velocity template stored in Servlet Context

I have listerer

public class StartListener implements ServletContextListener {

    private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(StartListener.class);

    public void contextInitialized(ServletContextEvent sce) {"App starts");

        ServletContext servletContext = sce.getServletContext();
        servletContext.setAttribute("links", new Links());

    public void contextDestroyed(ServletContextEvent sce) {"App ends");

In servlet I can do

Links links = (Links) getServletContext().getAttribute("links");

But I want to accses "links" directly from velocity template.
