What is the jsp implicit variable corresponding to javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet?
I think the answer is page.

There is no jsp implicit object that is a reference to the HttpServlet object.

"page" implicit object corresponds to the Object API.

Pls. correct me if I am wrong.

"page" implicit object corresponds to the Object API.

"page" implicit object corresponds to the servlet thats generated after the JSP page is translated and compiled. It's like "this" keyword.
