hi,
why is the following answer marked as correct? ( p 274 ,7 , C)

Which statement about session attributes are true?
C. Attriutes bound into a session are available to any other servlet that belongs to the same ServletContext?

The session is scoped at the web app (servlet context) level. If you put an attribute into the HttpSession, you can get to it from any JSP or servlet in your web app. See the servlet 2.4 specification:

SRV.7.3 Session Scope
HttpSession objects must be scoped at the application (or servlet context) level. The underlying mechanism, such as the cookie used to establish the session, can be the same for different contexts, but the object referenced, including the attributes in that object, must never be shared between contexts by the container. To illustrate this requirement with an example: if a servlet uses the RequestDispatcher to call a servlet in another Web application, any sessions created for and visible to the servlet being called must be different from those visible to the calling servlet.

- should that JSP or servlet participate the HttpSession to have an access to that attribute?
