Hi all When is recomended to store objects in the instance "application" and when in on static attributes ? As example I have a map which contanins the list of diferent sections of the site, when my jsp receives the param "sectionId" I look in this map to see if I have such key if so, I get the object and display its name amog other things. Now this work perfect but I have this feeling about using application.put() and application.get() would work better to retrive and store the data So, when should I use application and when static atrributes ?

When I say all sessions, it means all sessions of all users and different sessions of the same user. These variables can(will be) vary when you re-start your application ie; restart your app server. Now static variables are a totally different typr of variables. They have nothing to do with scope. You can have static variables in any scope - application, session, page, or ???
